Council employees offered ‘overdue’ pay rise

6 Dec 2017

Council employees have been offered a ‘long overdue’ two-year pay increase starting next year. Employees whose salaries start at £19,430 per annum will receive an uplift on 2% as of next April with a further 2% the following year. Those on the lowest salaries will also receive increases, with unions suggesting these could be as much as 16% over the two years.

The offer also includes the introduction of a new national pay spine on 1 April 2019.
