~~Despite the financial challenges faced in setting a budget for the coming year, Wirral UNISON welcomes the decision taken by the Leader and cabinet colleagues to restore NJC pay levels for council employees.
Council employees have taken more than their share of the pain with pay caps and pay freezes as well as unpaid leave.
They have been 1% behind NJC pay levels, due to forgoing a pay rise in 2013 that tried to mitigate further cuts and redundancies.
Your branch has continually pushed for pay levels to be given parity with other North West councils, we have lobbied hard on this matter and we are pleased that the leadership have listened.
They have shown they value what UNISON consider our main asset, its staff and our members.
Paddy Cleary - Branch Secretary
