COSLA comment on pay negotiations

COSLA’s Resources Spokesperson Councillor Gail Macgregor said: "COSLA’s Policy on pay parity across the workforce means that we have to be fair to all of our workforce. That is why the same improved offer has been made to all four of the bargaining groups we are in discussions with. 

"We have for a number of years now targeted more of the pay resource at the bottom end of the pay scales by consistently applying (or bettering), the Living Wage. 
"Our own research and analysis of this tells us that between the period 2010 to 2017,  the lowest paid have benefitted from anywhere between 13.62% and 35.73% rather than the 5.6%-6.6% increases to the remainder of the SJC workforce.
"Our objective is to maintain those gains for those in low pay."
