Local Government members will say no to 2%

I don't normally do predictions as I don't believe in astrology (because I am a Capricorn) but here is a safe bet...

When the results of the consultative ballot of UNISON members in local government are out they’ll appear on the local government page of the website. They’ll show a significant majority to reject the current 2% offer and to prepare for an official strike ballot. We need to find ways to coordinate with civil servants and postal workers, and to use the forthcoming TUC Congress to build that unity.

If we can build unity of large sections of the public service workforce we can defeat the 2% norm.
