Dundee City Council has been asked to improve its pay offer to local authority workers in a bid to avoid strike action.
The three unions representing council workers – Unison, Unite and the GMB – have written to the council, along with other local authorities in Scotland, urging them to increase the 3% offer currently on the table.
A Unison spokesman said: “The unions representing local government workers have written directly to every council leader across Scotland.”
Johanna Baxter, head of local government (bargaining), said: “Cosla leaders have the power to prevent mass industrial action by listening to, and addressing, the genuine concerns of our members.
“We would urge them to do so and to improve the current pay offer.”
GMB senior organiser Drew Duffy said: “Cosla and the Scottish Government are running out of time to do more for the lowest paid in local government.”
