Members working in schools and local councils will be consulted on the 2022 pay offer.
Significant pay boost vital to meet spiralling costs as unions call for at least £2,000 pay rise for local government and school workers.
Local government employers refuse to reopen discussions on pay despite 80% rejection of 1.75%.
UNISON, along with GMB and Unite, are to move to a national strike ballot following the overwhelming rejection of the 1.75% pay offer which is another real-terms pay cut for our members.
79%, or 4 out of 5, of our members working in local government and schools have voted to reject the derisory pay offer, which would be another pay cut in real-terms.
Prime Minister must now intervene to ensure a fully funded pay rise for council workers and school support staff.
