More information

UNISON, Unite and GMB are balloting local government workers after the insulting 1.75% pay offer (2.75% for those on the lowest pay point).

Youth workers, care workers, refuse collectors, social workers, teaching assistants, community workers, street cleaners and so many more went above and beyond during the pandemic.

They kept communities safe, cared for the most vulnerable, and ensured schools remained open throughout successive lockdowns. But the government is rewarding them with a pay cut in real terms for 2021, after already seeing their spending power reduced by 25% since 2010.

Members of all three unions have rejected the offer in an online consultation and are now campaigning for a Yes vote in a formal industrial action ballot.

UNISON’s ballot opens on 1 December, what better way to mark the start of the vote than with a rally?
