Better Pay Offered To Government Workers

Recommended Posts

Employers on Friday made an improved pay offer in a bid to head off threatened strike action by more than 1m local government workers.

The move comes just three weeks after Alan Johnson, health secretary, announced an improved pay offer for low-paid National Health Service workers and nurses.

The possibility of a public sector shutdown had threatened to embarrass Gordon Brown next month when he faced his first TUC and Labour party conferences as prime minister. This threat now appears to have been largely removed, with local government and health workers widely expected to back the improved pay deals.

looks like some oen has to pay.

spokesman for Local Government Employers said that the latest offer was “fair to staff and affordable for the council tax payer”. The increase reflected the contribution the workforce had made in generating substantial efficiency savings.
