Local government employees will be asked to support national industrial

action for the first time in 23 years, following the breakdown of pay talks

yesterday on behalf of 1.2 million employees in Europe's biggest bargaining group.

The employers tabled a final offer of 3%, the lowest in the public sector

pay round, just 24 hours after an offer to NHS support staff of between 3.6%

and up to 8% for the lowest paid.

T&G national organiser Jack Dromey, chairman of the three-union trade union

side, said: 'Local government is on the brink of the first national

strike since the Winter of Discontent.'
