Unison and the GMB have already held ballots with their members voting in favour of industrial action over the Government's decision to limit pay rises to 1%.

Their members will take part in a one-day strike on July 10th, but the participation of Unite members would add to the challenge to the Government's policy of limiting public sector pay rises.
