This improved offer means that everyone will get an extra £1925 pro rata at least and this will now be consolidated into our pay. This is a permanent uplift of 10% for those earning less than £20k and 7.2% for those earning less than £25k. It’s pro rata but based on 36 hours a week which is better than the previous offer based on 37 hours.
There is also an extra day’s annual leave and payment of SSSC fees for staff required to be registered.
This improved offer came ONLY because our members were prepared to take strike action. I am very proud of those members in Stirling in waste and schools and early years who won a pay ballot and who have stood up for the rest of us.
UNISON is now consulting with a recommendation to accept but the members will ultimately decide.
