Just a few days left for members in local government to return their industrial action ballot papers and vote for fair pay.
In today's Scotsman newspaper, UNISON Scotland's Head of Bargaining and Campaigns, Dave Watson, sets out why low pay is costing us all dear.
"The pay ballots in local government and elsewhere are motivated in part by workers wanting to look after their families. But it is also about building a stronger economy based on wages not profit. British workers need a pay rise, more say in the work place and an end to low pay."
