UNISON recommends members reject 1% local government pay offer

UNISON Scotland is to recommend that its local government members reject a final pay offer from councils.

Branch delegates meeting in Glasgow today (15 March) agreed to recommend rejection of the 1% offer from COSLA.

A full postal ballot will start later this month.

Stephanie Herd, Chair of the union's Local Government Committee, said: "Delegates today reflected the mood of workers throughout Scotland.

"An offer of 1% simply isn't enough after suffering years of real terms pay cuts. We will now move into the ballot."

Note to Editors
