For ten years we have struggled with real terms pay cuts. But you and your councillor can change this.
Your councillor can attend important meetings with the Local Government Association, to voice their support for council and school staff.
We have asked for the £10 real living wage for the lowest paid staff and a 10% increase for everyone else, to make up for an average 22% real terms pay cut since 2010. Our employer came back with a 2% offer, which is far below what we think is fair.
We need your help. Please email your councillor and convince them to use their influence to support hardworking staff, delivering local services.
