LOCAL GOVERNMENT PAY DISPUTE UPDATE

Following a request from the employers, the lead negotiators from both sides of the National Joint Council for Local Government Services met yesterday, on the deadlock in this year's pay negotiations. This followed the overwhelming rejection by the members of the three unions of the final offer from the employers of 3%.

Speaking after the meeting, T&G national organiser Jack Dromey said:

'Predictably, there was no move. The employers remain, unwisely, dug in. In those circumstances, we told them that we would now proceed with the ballot for industrial action. The ballot will be of all of our members covered by the terms and conditions of employment of the National Joint Council for Local Government Services in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The members in Scotland are covered by separate arrangements.'
