UNISON, Unite and the GMB have sent a joint letter to the leader of every local authority across Scotland urging them to improve the pay offer to council workers and avert strike action across local government.

The three trade unions representing local government workers have written directly to every council leader across Scotland in advance of the meeting of COSLA Leaders being held on Friday 30th November 2018. The three trade unions will be holding a demonstration outside of that meeting.

The letter to leaders states “There is now a very real possibility of widespread industrial action across the Local Government workforce unless you take measures to improve the current offer.  We would urge you to do so”.
