An Appeal to Local Government Branches

We have requisitioned a Special Local Government Service Group Conference on pay.

You can read why we have taken this step and if you agree then we need your help.

For the conference to take place it requires branches representing 25% of the Service Group membership to requisition.

If your branch agrees to do this then send this email to Heather Wakefield, Head of the Local Government Service Group at

Dear Heather

I am writing on behalf of our Branch to requisition a Special Local Government Service Group Conference.

In accordance with UNISON Rule D3.4.11 on xx.xx.xx date our Branch / Branch Executive agreed to call for the requisition of a Special Local Government Service Group Conference to consider the following business:

  • The 2014-2016 NJC Pay Proposals.
  • The decision to cancel strike action on 14th October.
  • The future Pay Consultation protocols in respect of Local Government pay claims.
  • The best means to secure a decent pay increase for Local Government members and to receive and consider all motions from Branches and Regions concerning the above.

Could you then please email us at to let us know and tell us your branch name and Local Government membership total as of 1st January 2014 so we know when we have reached 25%.

Thank you for your support.
