Description

Welcome to Nottingham Council’s annual Pay Policy Statement. The statement sets out the Council’s approach to setting pay and conditions for Chief Officers and those for the workforce. This year’s statement is the first to reflect the Council’s new SLMG pay structure, which was implemented as part of the new Nottingham Contract from 1st October 2018. The Council remains committed to paying a reasonable wage to our lowest paid employees and work is currently underway to ensure our pay structure is in line with the NJC new pay spine which will be introduced in April 2019, taking the lowest hourly rate to £9.00, which is equal to the current Voluntary Living Wage.

Welcome to Nottingham Council¿s annual Pay Policy Statement. The statement sets out the Council¿s approach to setting pay and conditions for Chief Officers and those for the workforce. This year¿s statement is the first to reflect the Council¿s new pay structure, which was implemented as part of the new Nottingham Contract from 1st April 2017. The Council remains committed to paying a reasonable wage to our lowest paid employees, and we have increased our lowest hourly rate to £8.25 per hour as part of the new pay structure. This reflects the rate recommended by the Living Wage Foundation as at 31 October 2016 when the pay structure was developed. Prior to 1st April 2017, we paid a supplement to reflect Living Wage rates, but we believe that incorporating this into permanent pay provides increased stability and peace of mind for our employees. The new pay structure has been bottom loaded to maintain differentials above the bottom of the grade, with the result that our lowest three grades have increased by between 1.5% and 9.6%, whilst higher grades have reduced.

Welcome to Nottingham Council¿s annual Pay Policy Statement. The statement sets out the Council¿s approach to setting pay and conditions for Chief Officers and those for the workforce. This year¿s statement shows that we are continuing to ensure that our employees can expect a reasonable wage. I am proud that the Living Wage supplement continues to form part of all our lowest paid employees¿ salaries. The Council remains committed to pay a current minimum hourly rate of £7.85, moving to £8.25 from 1st April 2017, which is far higher than the Government¿s National Living Wage of £7.50 per hour (as at 1st April 2017).

Welcome to Nottingham Council¿s annual Pay Policy Statement. The statement sets out the Council¿s approach to setting pay and conditions for Chief Officers and those for the workforce. This year¿s statement once again demonstrates how we are continuing to ensure that our employees can expect a reasonable wage. I am pleased to confirm that the Living Wage supplement continues to form part of all our lowest paid employees¿ salaries, and that the Council has increased the hourly rate to £7.85 from 1 October 2015. Furthermore, we continue to pay increments to our employees on the lowest four pay bands, as agreed last year for a period of two years (2014/15 and 2015/16). Future decisions regarding increments are currently under consideration but have yet to be confirmed.

Description

Welcome to Nottingham City Council¿s annual Pay Policy Statement. The statement sets out the Council¿s approach to setting pay and conditions for chief officers and those for the workforce. This year¿s statement shows further important steps to ensure that our employees can expect a reasonable wage. The Appointments and Conditions of Service Committee agreed to reduce the pay of our Chief Executive when we appointed Ian Curryer in December 2012. At the other end of the scale, we are moving towards a living wage. We have approved the payment of a supplement to the salaries of lower paid employees to increase their wages to £7.65 with effect from 1 April 2014.
