Below is the official announcement from UNISON Regional Office that the strike has been called off pending further talks and a consultation with members on the revised offer.
The NJC Committee met today and agreed by 20 votes to 9 to suspend the strike action planned for 14 October. The Committee further voted by 24 votes to 5 to consult members over new proposals. This will be on the basis that they are the best achievable by negotiation. Attached is the joint TU Side statement that has been released to the press and media.
The consultation process will be in accordance with the Service Group’s Pay Consultation procedures and – wherever possible – branches will be asked to conduct local ballots of members.
