LG Pay 2017 - Consultative Ballot NOW OPEN!

The online consultative ballot over Scottish Local Government Pay for 2017 is OPEN NOW (Friday 17th March 2017).

The ballot page is available at: unison.org.uk/lgscot17 and will close at noon on Friday 7th April.


(if the above link does not work, try the direct link https://research.unison.org.uk/s3/lgscot2017).

Unison Scotland LG is recommending that you REJECT the employer's final offer of a £350 rise for those earning up to £35K per annum (assuming a 37 hour week) but a 1% rise for those above £35K.

This falls far short of our claim of £1000 rise for all pay points.

Posters and leaflets with information on the ballot, our claim, the employer's offer and why we are recommending you REJECT, are available at:

All you will need to access your vote is:

a) Either your Unison Member No. OR Your National Insurance Number


b) Your Date of Birth and Surname

Please remember, if this leads to a full postal ballot on action, the Tories have changed the law so that we must get 50% of our members voting for any ballot for industrial action to count. So, we need to start with good turnouts in the consultative ballots.

Don't let the Tories take your rights away. Use your vote or risk having no vote!  - Don't pay for the bankers' crisis. Vote REJECT
