United Kingdom -Wage offer welcomed -November 24, 2012

The Employers’ organisation COSLA has offered to increase pay by 1% for Council workers from 1 April 2013. The offer also includes a proposal to bring in a living wage of £7.50 per hour in every council in Scotland. GMB Scotland is delighted to see a living wage coming in across all Councils as this has been a long held goal for us. This will introduce the living wage to 17,000 workers in Local Government. However, after 3 years of wage restraint the union does not believe the increase of 1 % is enough to address the drop in living standards.
