COSLA COMMENT ON LOCAL GOVERNMENT SETTLEMENT

A spokesperson for COSLA said: “Discussions with the Scottish Government over the local government settlement for 2018/19 are underway and clearly pay inflation will be an important part of this. There is a rising level of expectation over pay being created  through the removal of the public sector pay cap in Scotland.

"We anticipate learning the outcome of these talks in mid-December when the Finance Secretary Mr Mackay discloses his proposed budget and with that the local government settlement."
