2018 SJC Pay Claim Submitted

Pay Up Now Demo - Edinburgh 2017

The joint Trade Union side of the Scottish Joint Council (SJC) submitted their claim for a pay award for Scottish Local Government Employees to the employers representatives at CoSLA on Friday 12th January.

The basic claim is for an increase that is the better of 6.5% or £1500 p/a.

It was  made clear that while aware of the financial difficulties facing councils, our members were fed up taking below inflation pay rises (effectively pay cuts) and it was time for an award that not just matched inflation but exceeded it to begin to redress the years of lost earnings during the period of austerity that followed the crisis.

Unison will be contacting and consulting its members regularly over the coming weeks and months to ensure everyone is aware of and involved in our campaign for better pay. Dundee City Unison will be discussing local activities to help promote the campaign in our area.
