Stirling Council set to move away from collective bargaining – unions prepare for strike ballot

Statement from the joint trade unions at Stirling Council – UNISON, Unite, GMB and UCATT

Council set to walk away from negotiations, collective bargaining:

It is with regret that we inform you that Stirling Council management indicated today that they intend to move away from the collective bargaining process. The trade unions therefore are left with no alternative but to prepare to ballot their members for industrial action. Stirling Council proposes savage cuts to both pay and terms and conditions, coming on the back of three years of a pay freeze.
