Today industrial action ballot papers are being sent to 600,000 UNISON local government members in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The pay ballot closes on 23 June and mobilising support for industrial action must be the number one priority of the involved UNISON branches over the next four weeks. GMB and Unite are also balloting in a long overdue united challenge to pay restraint in local government. UNISON head of local government Heather Wakefield makes the case for a YES vote in the adjacent video .
