Local government union proposes strike

Submitted by AWL on 25 April, 2008 - 9:19

In sharp contrast to the health sector, members of the public sector union Unison in local government are being given a clear direction to reject their current pay offer and prepare for strike action.

The Unison local government Executive is calling for members to support “sustained and escalating strike action, starting with a two-day strike and escalating to more than two consecutive days of action, to get the employers back to the negotiating table.”

The results of the current branch based consultation will be reported back to the next executive meeting on 12 May. Branches are being encouraged to hold local ballots in the meantime and circulate information about the deal.
