Union members vote to accept 2% pay rise for council staff

The vast majority of GMB members have voted to accept the 2% local government pay offer.

In a postal vote of all members, 94% have voted to accept the pay offer on the table.

The pay offer includes a 2% uplift as of next April with a further 2% the following year for those earning at least s£19,430 per annum.

The offer also includes the introduction of a new national pay spine on 1 April 2019.

Both Unison and Unite are still balloting members over the offer.
