A planned strike that was set to take place next week has been cancelled.

The trade unions - UNISON, GMB and UNITE - were set to take industrial action on Tuesday (October 14).

It would have involved a number of people employed in schools across the city and at Milton Keynes Council.

A spokesman for UNISON said: “All three unions have made it clear that they want to strengthen the collective bargaining machinery covering local government and schools and move quickly to jointly tackle important issues facing their members with the Local Government Association.

“Members covered by the National Joint Council for Local Government have the lowest pay in the public sector and have suffered significant attacks on their conditions of work in recent years.

“The unions will now move forward together to consult their members.”
