ocal government workers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland took industrial action on 10 July for fair pay.
From 1 October the national minimum wage increased, making local government officially a minimum wage employer. This is a disgrace. The joint trade unions – Unite, Unison and GMB – will then be taking a further 24 hours of industrial action on 14 October .
We want proper negotiations and a decent pay offer for fair pay for all local government workers who work hard helping our communities.
