The result of the Industrial Action ballot for UNISON members in Scottish local government which closed yesterday was announced today. The result was a 62.7% vote in favour of industrial action.

Details below:

• Number of votes cast; 15,214
• Number of yes votes; 9,540
• Number of no votes; 5,662
• Number of spoiled or invalid papers; 12

Unfortunately as the turnout is below the 50% threshold, it is not possible to take industrial action under current legislation imposed by the UK Government.

UNISON’s Scottish Local Government Committee met in Glasgow this morning to consider the ballot result and understandably were disappointed.

The ballot did return a vote in favour of taking industrial action but did not meet the requirements of the Trade Union Act 2016. However the result did indicate that there are a substantial number of UNISON members who are unhappy with the employers offer on pay.

The employers have previously stated that they would be prepared to meet with the trade unions once the ballot had concluded and as a result UNISON will be seeking an early meeting to explore how pay can be concluded for 2017/18.

We will keep fighting for fair pay for our members !
