STUC General Secretary's Statement - Tuesday 23 September 2008:
"Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s local government strike amongst members of GMB, UNISON and UNITE Grahame Smith, Scottish TUC General Secretary, said:
“I have every reason to believe that local government workers will show massive support for tomorrow’s action. Thousands of low paid public service workers simply cannot afford to see their standard of living fall further. There is enormous disappointment that, having recognized the justice of the pay claim, COSLA has not increased its original offer of 2.5%. They will need to do so if future action is to be averted.”"
