New pay offer leads to strike suspension

UNISON Scotland news release
Thursday 2 October - Immediate

UNISON, Scotland’s largest local government union, said that an improved pay offer from Scottish local government employers meant that the union would suspend next week’s selective strike action, so that members could be consulted.

Dougie Black, UNISON regional officer, and leader of the negotiators said:

“After two strikes and previous fruitless negotiations, I’m pleased that we now have a new offer. It is at a level – 3% this year and 2.5% for next year – that needs to go back to members to get their view. In the meantime we have agreed to suspend the selective action to allow this to happen.”
