As the Government announces it does not want to see regional pay for public sector workers. UNISON says it welcomes the news.
The Government has announced that it does not want to see regional pay for public sector workers. This appears to undermine controversial plans by health trusts across the south west to set their own pay and conditions.
Labour councillors will today urge Bristol City Council to oppose regional pay.
They say reducing the pay of more than sixty thousand public sector workers in Bristol could damage the local economy. The New Economics Foundation say regional pay could cost the South West more than twelve thousand jobs.
