Scottish councils strike threat as pay deal rejected
Council workers have rejected the 2018 pay offer put forward by local government body Cosla. The GMB union said 92% of its members across the country had voted against the offer and would now "carry forward" plans for industrial action. The offer included a 3% pay rise for all employees earning up to £36,500 and 2% for those earning between £36,501 and £80,000. A Cosla spokesman said the rejection of the offer was "disappointing".https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-44540397
