In December 2015, The Local Government Association made its final pay offer in respect of the two year period 1st April 2016 /31st March 2018.
UNISON’s NCJ Committee recommends that Members reject the offer because it falls far short of what UNISON Members deserve and what the employers can afford.
The Committee is clear that the offer made in December 2015 is the best offer achievable through negotiation and that nothing short of a concerted campaign at political level and industrial action up to and including all out strike action will have the potential to improve the offer.
UNISON Darlington Local Government Branch is asking those Members employed by Darlington Borough Council to vote in the pay ballot. The closing date for responding is Friday 12th February 2016.
Members wishing to obtain a ballot paper and / or details of the pay offer should contact the Branch Office on 01325 40 5991 / firstname.lastname@example.org
