LOCAL GOVERNMENT PAY DISPUTE: INDUSTRIAL ACTION – IMPORTANT UPDATE

Standard

Unison’s NJC Committee met yesterday to consider plans for industrial action, following the strike on 10 July and its earlier decision to follow this with further action on 30 September.

The Committee agreed that maintaining unity between the three local government unions – GMB, Unite and UNISON, other sectors within UNISON and other public sector unions is crucial to achieving an improved pay offer for our members.

The NJC Committee therefore agreed not to proceed with strike action on 30 September and to seek approval from the Industrial Action Committee for all-out strike action on 14 October. This has the agreement of GMB and Unite and will coincide with the week of action planned by the NHS unions over pay.
