 Staff at Stirling Council are staging a one-day strike in a row over pay and conditions.
The council has proposed a 0.5% pay cut across all pay grades and an additional hour of work per week.
Unison described it as a 1.5% pay cut after council staff across Scotland narrowly accepted a below-inflation 1% pay rise.
The council's chief executive Bob Jack said the union's decision to hold a strike was "regrettable".
However, Unison Stirling branch secretary James Douglas claimed the proposals were "by far the worst faced by any council in Scotland".
