United Kingdom -Ballot over 1% pay offer -April 25, 2013

A pay offer of 1%, made by the Local Government Association, received differing responses from the trade unions representing local government workers. GMB, UNISON and Unite are to ballot members over the offer. With this offer a three-year pay freeze is broken, but there is disappointment that only 1% is on the table. Local government workers have seen a 16% decline in the value of their pay in the last three years, coupled with significant local attacks on terms and conditions.
