Unite consults on industrial action over pay

Unite members are being asked what type of industrial action they are prepare to take to protest at their latest pay deal.

Ministers recently imposed a three-year, 7.99 per cent pay rise which Unite leaders claim is ‘derisory’ and below-inflation.

A series of meetings with members will be held across the UK this month to canvass opinion. Using the feedback, the union will prepare a ballot containing a menu of strike options. 

Unite has also prepared a national petition for both its members and for the general public which will be presented to Downing Street later in the year.
