Building a campaign against pay freezes

All pay-restraint policies in the past have been broken but only by unions mobilising for action against them. This is the challenge facing us in the coming months, writes UNISON Scotland's Stephen Smellie in the Morning Star. http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/news/content/view/full/117782

Reflecting his speech to UNISON Scotland's Local Governmkent Conference yesterday, he calls for a Scottish campaign to break the pay-freeze, starting with lobbying every candidate in the council elections and building to a joint union, cross-service generalised pay campaign.
