Pay and staffing policies

By law we must have a Pay Policy Statement, but we also publish our:

The pay multiple

The pay multiple, the ratio between the highest paid salary and the median average salary of the whole of the authority’s workforce, is 1:4.1. The ratio between the lowest and highest members of staff is 1:7.6. This is within the maximum ratio of 1:20 identified as a maximum pay multiple in the Hutton Review of Public Sector Pay.

Trade Union Facility Time

We do not recognise any Trade Union for the purposes of consultation and negotiation.

Staff can join a Trade Union if they want to and the majority of staff who decide to become a member join UNISON. We do not have a Facility Agreement with UNISON which means activities are undertaken in staffs' own time.
