24 Apr 2013

GMB To Consult Members In Local Government In England, Wales And Northern Ireland Over New Pay Offer For 2013.  There is likely to be relief that we have broken the 3 year pay freeze but disappointment that there is only 1% on the table so we will see whether that’s enough to satisfy our members says GMB. GMB, the union for staff in local government, responded to the pay offer put forward by the employers covering 1.5m staff in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Brian Strutton, GMB National Secretary for Public Services, said “GMB will consider this pay offer and then we will consult our members to ask whether they wish to accept it or not.  My initial reaction is that there is likely to be relief that we have broken the 3 year pay freeze but disappointment that there is only 1% on the table (See Note 2 below). We’ll see whether that’s enough to satisfy our members.”
