Following five hours of constructive dialogue between Brighton & Hove City Council and the GMB held under the auspices of the arbitration service ACAS yesterday, a further round of talks will be held on 28 June.

In the interim and whilst discussions continue, the GMB union as a sign of good faith will not be seeking to issue notices of industrial action. All parties look forward to getting back around the table next week.
