The Transport and General Workers Union has warned that strike action is likely if Scottish councils do not agree to the national agreement on single status and a 2.8% pay increase, reports the Glasgow Herald (p1).

The Convention of Scottish Local Authorities has backed off the national award which also gives a minimum wage of£4 an hour, saying councils cannot afford it.

The union has said if members endorse the deal they would ballot for a mandate to strike. The agreement has been heralded by unions as ending discrimination against manual workers in local government.

Scottish councils already face a ballot on strike action from Unison if they do not agree to implement the agreement in full.
