UNISON members in Scotland will soon be balloted for industrial action over their 2008 pay claim. Ballot papers will be sent out at the beginning of July with votes due back by 31st July. This is an extremely tight time scale and will present a challenge to activists. The decision to call a vote on industrial action was taken at a delegate conference in Glasgow on 29th May following a period of informal consultation.Some 20% of members took part in the consultation by attending meetings or by voting through e-mail or ballot. Those that took part were overwhelmingly for strike action.
