Thank you to all members who took part in the consultative ballot on the NJC pay offer.

In the Dudley General branch, 80% of members voted to accept the offer while 20% voted to reject. Nationally, staff in the local government sector voted two to one (66%) in favour of the 2020/21 pay award.

The union’s national joint council committee accepted the offer from employers, but said it fell far short of the 10% claim and did not properly reward key workers for their exceptional contributions throughout the pandemic.
