Following the breakdown of local government workers pay talks yesterday, Unison's APT&C and manual and craft sector committees met today to discuss the next step in their fight for better pay.

Keith Sonnet, Unison head of local government, said:

'We have agreed to consult members on whether they would be prepared to reject the 2.9% pay offer and take part in substantial strike action, without pay. The committees have recommended that the members back the proposal for strike action in support of their pay claim, which we believe is totally justified.'

Branches will be asked to consult with members and notify regional officers of the result of the consultation process by 18 March. The sector committees will meet on 22 March, and should members support industrial action a special conference will be held as soon as possible after that date.'
