A three-day strike at Glasgow City Council has been averted after last-minute talks between Unison and leader Steven Purcell (Lab). The union had called the strike following fears that some 5,000 staff would lose pay under the grading review used to implement single status.
Under a deal thrashed out by the two sides, Glasgow has agreed to take 'all appropriate action' to ensure that staff who would lose pay get the chance to move to a higher level post as a result of service redesigns and development plans.
The council agreed to extend pay protection beyond March 2009 - the original cut off point - for staff in areas
where redesigns had not been completed.
