Pay Ballot April 2021

Letter to Council Leader

The results of our pay ballot are: 

  • 88% of members voted to reject the current pay offer and  
  • 74% of members voted in favour of taking some form of industrial action, up to and including strike action, in pursuit of an improved offer. 

UNISON have communicated this result to the employer and COSLA Leaders (attached) and issued a press release .  

COSLA Leaders meet tomorrow and have this on their agenda.  There is a further negotiating meeting next Tuesday and it is anticipated that if any improvement is going to be made to the offer that it will be presented then.  We are also liaising with other trade union colleagues around next steps.  We will keep you abreast of any developments.   

In the meantime as UNISON Stirling Branch Secretary I have forwarded the attached letter to our Stirling Council Leader  with a request that they stand by their workforce at tomorrow’s meeting and support calls for an improved offer to be made.
