Local government workers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland who are covered by pay negotiations at the national joint council are being consulted on the employers’ two-year pay offer.
The consultation is being conducted via branches, who will then report the results to their regional offices.
Consultation started on 29 January and ends on 9 March. UNISON’s NJC committee of lay activists will meet on 16 March to discuss the results and next steps on 16 March.
There is a range of materials to help branches with with the consultation – in addition to the first leaflet on the offer, the pay consultation procedures and the ballot paper, which have been sent to branches.
These and additional materials, including leaflets, PowerPoint presentations on the offer, frequently asked questions and other resources can be found on the dedicated UNISON Pay Up Now for council and school workers web page.
