Local government workers get interim pay rise

U.K. U.K.
The dispute over the 2008 pay increase for local government workers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland has not yet been resolved. However, the employers have agreed to increase pay rates by 2.45% (backdated to 1 April 2008) plus £100 for the lowest paid workers. The increase will be implemented in November while both sides wait for the results of arbitration that should lead to a final settlement of the dispute. Meanwhile local government unions in Scotland, who are covered by a separate agreement, are being balloted over the employers’ latest offer. The unions are recommending rejection of the that would pay a 3% increase in 2008 and 2.5% in both 2009 and 2010.
