Pay up now!
March to scrap the cap
Saturday 7 October 2017
Assemble from 11am at Johnston Terrace next to Castle. The march will head off at 11.45am
Thousands of folk from across Scotland will be marching in Edinburgh on Saturday 7 October in support of UNISON’s campaign to scrap the pay cap and pay up now.
We are calling on both the UK and the Scottish government to end the enforced freezes and pay caps that have been in place for the last decade.
In this time the value of the wages of council workers has fallen over 15% behind inflation. This is in effect a cut in the value of our pay by 15%.
We will march from the Castle, down the Royal Mile to Holyrood for the rally with UNISON General Secretary Dave Prentis.
