Local Government Pay Claim

5 Nov 2013

At a meeting with local government employers today, 5 November, GMB and the other trade unions submitted a document setting out the arguments in support of our claim for 2014 which is :–

“A minimum increase of £1 an hour on scale point 5 to achieve the Living Wage and the same flat rate increase on all other scale points”

The full claim document is available to download below.  The local government employers said they will be consulting with councils and expect to be giving a formal response to our claim in February.

We must therefore use the intervening period to campaign and raise awareness of our strong case for a decent pay rise in 2014. We are told the economy is recovering, it’s about time local government workers had a fair share.
