Local government strike action suspended

The planned one-day local government strike in England, Wales and Northern Ireland on 14 October was called off and further action suspended while the trade unions consult with their members over an improved offer from the employers. The offer includes pay increases ranging from 8.56% for the lowest paid to 2.2% for those on higher pay scales. The increases would take effect from 1 January 2015 while there would be lump sum payments of between £100 (€125) and £325 (€410) in December 2014, again with the higher amounts for the lower paid.
