Monday 2 April 2018


We received an update on pay late last week from our colleagues at UNISON Scotland.

The Scottish Joint Council Steering Group met with COSLA last Wednesday and they have tabled an offer but as far as the trade unions are concerned discussions are ongoing.  Both UNISON Scotland and COSLA have written to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance pressing him for more money for local government and emphasising the need for parity of treatment across the local authority bargaining groups - local authorities, teachers, craft and chief officials.  UNISON has sought further negotiations in pursuit of our full claim.

We’ll get a further update once the outcome of those representations is known and the Branch Secretary will get a full update at the Local Government conference on 13 April which he’ll share with everyone afterwards.
