Salford City Council agrees new pay for employees

Salford City Council is the first organisation in the north west to officially reach a collective agreement to fully implement the national pay agreement.

It is all part of the national pay agreement, which introduces a new national pay spine in April 2019 . A deal has been reached with the trade unions on transition with a collective agreement signed by all parties on Wednesday 12 December.

It will see those on starting salaries of just over £19,000 receive a two per cent increase – with those on lower wages receiving a higher increase. Building on the council’s commitment to ensure that the lowest paid earn a fair living wage as an accredited Foundation Living Wage employer.
