Word is beginning to filter through that UNISON have not reached the industrial action ballot threshold (50%) in their pay ballot. If this is true then it means Unite and GMB members will have to carry the fight for better pay and conditions to the employer without this union.
Our ballot closes on 7th October 2021 and ballots were posted last week.
Members balloted are:
- school cleaners
- school caterers
- school janitors (FT and FTS)
- Waste and Cleansing (Inc Civic Sites, Street Cleansing and Refuse Collection)
Anyone who has not returned their ballot yet we urge to return, with a vote for Industrial Action.
Anyone who has not received a ballot yet should immediately contact the Edinburgh office on: 0131 556 9676. We cannot guarantee that you will get a ballot if you call after Friday 1st October 2021.
