Local government employers have reiterated their claim that pay bargaining needs to take on a more regional dimension during oral evidence given to the Local Government Pay Commission.
The Employers' Organisation's written submission to the commission, handed in last month (LGC, 2 May), demands more flexibility to allow councils to negotiate pay for unsociable hours, staff responsibility and performance.
Speaking after giving verbal evidence last week, Brian Baldwin (Lab), part of the EO delegation, said the exchange had been 'positive and constructive'.
Unison has rejected the employers' offer to increase London weighting by £200 for the lowest paid. The union has demanded £4,000 across the board.
