Members of trade union Unison have voted by 63.5% to 36.5% to accept the national employers’ final pay offer for local government services employees.

Employers have put forward a flat rate pay rise of £1,925, saying this would give the lowest paid workers a double-digit pay increase, and an extra day of holiday to all staff.

Consultations for the two other local government trade unions Unite and GMB close later this month.

Unite has rejected the offer, arguing it represents a cut in real terms and has warned it would consider all options in how to escalate the dispute if an improved offer is not made.

The GMB is understood to view the offer more favourably.

Unison’s head of local government Mike Short said: ‘All three [unions] will get together when this concludes to make a decision on next steps.’
