UNISON members in local government in England, Wales and Northern Ireland have voted by 55% to 45% for a programme of sustained strike action over a 2.45% pay offer.
The National Joint Council committee have agreed with 55% of our members that we will fight for a decent pay rise. They also confirmed the 16th and 17th of July will be the action dates.

This decision needs to be ratified by the Industrial action committee on Friday (which it is expected to do).
Once it is formally agreed this branch will begin building for the days of action.
UNISON is a democratic organisation and it is hoped that all members will abide by the ballot result and support the strike!
