COSLA comment on equal pay claims

A COSLA Spokesperson said: “The first thing to say is that it is not for COSLA to comment on equal pay agreements that are made at an individual level with authorities.

“What I can say however is that Councils have endeavoured to settle all legitimate claims as quickly as possible and will continue to do so. In addition, Councils will continue to meet their commitments in relation to employers’ obligations around tax and NI.

“Obviously, it is right and proper for Councils to determine payments in accordance with the pension regulations and settlements on the basis of the timing of agreements and the applicable rules in place at that time.”
