Scottish local government strike

In a debate on pay at today's meeting of the UNISON National Executive Council (NEC) it was left to Scottish NEC member, Jane Carolan, to report on today's biggest UNISON news (http://www.unison.org.uk/news/news_view.asp?did=8564).



Our members in Scottish local government are to ballot for strike action alongside members of UNITE (GMB having decided to accept the below-inflation 1% pay offer). There are plans for two national one-day strikes and a rolling programme of regional strikes.



This positive news should encourage local government workers in England Wales and Northern Ireland to reject the similar offer before us - and for Higher Education staff to do likewise.
