We have now received the results of the Local Government Industrial Action ballot.

Unfortunately the 50% ballot turnout threshold set in the Trade Union Act 2017 has not been met in Argyll and Bute. This means that we will not be able to proceed to take action in relation to the 2022 pay offer for the SJC workforce.

The branch would like to thank all our members who returned their ballot papers and for your continued support.

Please see the UNISON Scotland Press Release below which details more information about the ballot: https://unison-scotland.org/local-government-workers-vote-for-strikes-across-scotland/

Branch officers will attend UNISON’s Local Government Committee this Friday and will report back on next steps.
