We have been advised of the NJC unions positions in response to the Employers final offer.
The GMB and UNISON are conducting a ballot of their members, without any recommendation, with a return date of end of July for a response. The Unite union is similarly consulting its members, with a recommendation to reject the offer, with this running through to the middle of August. It is unlikely to reach a conclusion until late August at the earliest, assuming all unions accept.
As a reminder, the Employers final offer was for:
- A 2.75% increase
- An additional days leave, bringing the entitlement up to 22 days
