GMB Scotland Media Statement: Latest COSLA Proposals
Responding to this afternoon’s (Friday 19 August) latest proposals from COSLA to continue negotiations with unions on an offer “that achieves the overall value of a 5% pay uplift and a minimum hourly rate of £10.50”, GMB Scotland Senior Organiser Keir Greenaway said:
“The latest proposals will be considered by our local government committee, but the principle of a flat rate award is a key demand of the trade union pay claim. For any offer to be deemed worthy of our members full consultation the biggest cash increases must go to the lowest paid.”
