Birmingham UNISON stewards attended the lobby at the Pay Roadshow on 17th September 2019, where the Local Government Association were meeting with the Midlands Councils on responding to our pay claim.
UNISON is campaigning for Fair Pay Now in the forthcoming pay settlement. It, along with other unions, wants a minimum of £10 per hour and after years of austerity and neglect a fair pay rise for all Local Government workers.
The employers are consulting Councils on our claim in September and October; then they’ll meet to decide a pay offer.
Any offer will need Government funding, so UNISON is lobbying politicians to make a case for extra funding.
