As you'll know, on 12th January 2018 UNISON submitted a pay claim for a £1,500 flat rate increase to all spinal column points, or 6.5%, whichever is greater (based on a 37 hour working week). This claim includes an above inflation increase plus an element of restoration.
The ball is now in the employer's hands. We understand that they want to see the detail of the Government’s final budget settlement and then consult COSLA Leaders before responding to our claim. We do not therefore expect to have a formal response to our claim until the end of March.
So we thought this would be the perfect time to ask members for their views on the claim and how they think they might be able to help us get the increase you all deserve. To this end UNISON Scotland have drafted a short survey to take the pulse of the membership. The link to the survey is:
If you've provided an email address then you'll get an email about the survey in the next couple of days. UNION would like responses by 16 March but why not just fill it in now?
