Members may be aware that the 1 June deadline the employers attached to their 0.5% pay offer has passed. This offer has been rejected by Unison as "unacceptable". However, unions have been reassured that the employers will not carry out their threat to make no offer at all if agreement was not reached by the end of May. Talks have been continuing and the trade union side is awaiting a response and possible revised offer from the employers. Branches are being asked to prepare for a possible consultation on a revised offer.

Many thanks to everybody that gave their views on the current pay offer.  Around a third of you responded to our informal consultation. At this stage, the majority of members in this branch (57%) were in favour of accepting the 0.5% offer as it stands, plus a number of you gave us your comments and views.  Kevin O'Grady, Branch Secretary, took your views along to the Eastern region meeting of Local Government branches on Friday 1 May, attended by national Head of LG, Heather Wakefield.

The Trade Union Side of the NJC Executive has written to Local Government Employers to say they cannot recommend the 0.5% pay offer to members, and have instead requested an urgent meeting to start negotiations.

The Local Government Employers have moved quickly to make an offer for the 2009/10 pay round.  The offer is for 0.5%, which will be withdrawn if not accepted by 1 June.  There is no suggestion that the offer will be imposed - it is a case of accept it or get nothing.
