Union to enter talks with local government employers
On 23rd July UNISON’s local government National Joint Committee (NJC) voted unanimously to back further talks with Local Government Employers, aimed at settling the current dispute over pay.
Discussions between UNISON, Unite and the Local Government Employers led to an understanding that talks can go ahead, with a timetable to be agreed at a later date. Joint talks are scheduled to start on 13 August.
In the light of this decision the NJC agreed not to name a date for further strike action. Progress will be monitored over the coming weeks and the decision reviewed in September.
