More Action Planned After Second Council Pay Row Strike:
The Herald Thursday 25 September 2008
"Unions are planning a further round of council strikes for next month after yesterday's action by some 150,000 workers failed to bring a settlement to the protracted pay dispute any closer.
The second one-day strike in five weeks by Unison, GMB and Unite members led to widespread closure of schools, libraries, museums, community centres and the cancellation of bin collections and ferry services across Scotland.
Plans are now being drawn up for a series of smaller strikes targeting specific local authority areas from October 6 and initially lasting a fortnight."
