Pay and Conditions - Single Status

The Scottish Single Status agreement for most local government staff (and related sector staff on SNJC conditions) was accepted by a membership ballot at the end of March 1999. It now constitutes the Scottish conditions for all staff (eg Manual and APT&C) although some parts are still subject to specific negotiations. The full agreement is printed here and available for download on the UNISONScotland Local Government pages.

Local negotiations are under way on several aspects in the City of Edinburgh Branch. Details will be published as they emerge.
