Huge Vote To Reject Council Pay Offer

The result of Unison’s Scotland’s consultative ballot is:

79% of those voting voted to reject the offer.

67% of those voting voted to take industrial action, up to and including strike action in pursuit of the Joint Trade Unions pay claim.

Unison will inform the employer of these results tomorrow and invite them to get back around the negotiating table.

Unison will discuss the possibility of co-ordination of activity with our sister trade unions and start to put in place the process for moving towards holding a statutory industrial action ballot.
