UNISON’s industrial action ballot for council and school worker pay opens soon. UNISON members working in council and schools need a significant pay rise that builds on the employers offer. The offer of £1,925 represents a further loss of pay for local government and school staff at a time when rapid inflation has pushed prices up faster than wages.
UNISON’s NJC Committee has voted to recommend that members REJECT the offer as it falls short of our claim and represents a pay cut at all grades.
UNISON West Sussex branch officers will be running a presentation with a Q&A session in Council Offices soon; come and meet Branch Officers to discuss the ballot and find out what the employers offer in real terms means to you.
