Pay News - June 2009

Members may be aware that the 1 June deadline the employers attached to their 0.5% pay offer has passed. This offer has been rejected by Unison as "unacceptable".

However, unions have been reassured that the employers will not carry out their threat to make no offer at all if agreement was not reached by the end of May.

Talks have been continuing and the trade union side is awaiting a response and possible revised offer from the employers. Branches are being asked to prepare for a possible consultation on a revised offer.

We will keep you updated as the situation develops.
