NJC Pay Claim 2014/15

Please visit the UNISON National Website for up to date information: http://www.unison.org.uk/at-work/local-government/key-issues/local-government-pay/home/


The ballot opens on 23 May.

Ballot papers will be despatched to individual members at their home addresses.

We need every member to vote, and vote "YES".

The employers have made it very clear that their offer is final.  It will not be increased without real pressure on them.

You will be asked to vote "YES" on the basis that if the employers don't improve their offer, we will follow this up with further strike action.  The first strike day will be 10 July.

Please see attached for further details.

If you have any questions or are unsure how to vote, drop into one of our meetings.

Pay Ballot Meeting Dates

Consultative Ballot Result - published 17 April 2014

The result of the Nottingham City UNISON Consultative Ballot is as follows:

Reject the Employers' offer : 157
Accept the Employers' offer : 35

Next steps

UNISON Regions will feed the results of branch ballots back to the local government service group and the NJC Committee will consider the responses when they meet on 24 April.

UNISON's NJC Committee will consider whether there is enough support to move to an official industrial action ballot of members, starting in May. It is crucial that we have a good response to the current informal consultation so that the UNISON NJC Committee's decision reflects the membership's views.

We will keep you up to date on the decision and next steps. It is also vital to carry on campaigning amongst MPs and local councillors to let them know what the meagre offer means for our members and to remind them that NJC pay will be an election issue.
