Fantastic Festive Wishes

It’s Christmas and we had considered publishing a bumper Christmas Annual to celebrate the year past and look forward to the year to come. However, when we started writing it we became too depressed and decided to discontinue as we didn’t want to spoil anyone’s festive break.

We’ll come back in the new year with a review and look ahead so if you wish to publish anything (editorial being the preserve of the branch officials), comment on anything or make suggestions please send these to the branch secretary (email address below). A brief newsletter is also available below if you wish.

Unison join Unite in rejecting CoSLA pay offer

Our comrades in Unison today joined the growing throng of Local Government workers across Scotland who feel insulted by the derisory 3% pay offer from CoSLA.

Unison’s rejection of the pay offer is almost exactly the same as Unite’s.  Union members have spoken,  CoSLA and the Scottish Government should listen carefully.

Members of Unite, Unison and GMB will demonstrate outside the CoSLA offices to tell CoSLA and the Scottish Government that 3% IS A PAY CUT 

Unite the Union, UNISON and GMB Demo – Friday 9th November 12.30pm in Haymarket in Edinburgh.

12.30pm to 1,30pm
