Voting deadline is 14 January 2022

The deadline for casting your vote is the 14
th January 2022 and it is vital that you use your vote.

We know going on strike is not something you do lightly. Your job is incredibly important, and people rely on you.  But your employer has made you, and other council and school workers, an unfair offer.

1.75% might sound like it’s better than nothing – but with inflation well above 3%, it’s a real terms pay cut. This year, every pound in your pay packet will really count.

It comes after a decade of declining pay. The value of your pay is now 25% lower than it was in 2010! Year after year, it’s been chipped away.

Unless we say ‘enough!’, your pay will fall further, and those holding the purse strings will get away with it. 

It’s time to take action, please make sure you return your ballot paper by Friday 14th January. 

If your ballot is lost or spoiled, you can get a replacement by logging into ‘My Unison’ at or call the hotline on 0800 0 857 857.

The hotline is open between 9 December and 10 January.
