Pay deals by individual councils have contributed to a boost in pay settlements for the public sector, according to the latest Income Data Services Report.

The median settlement for the second quarter has been pushed up from 3% to 3.2%, with many opted-out councils following a 3.5% pay rise to help combat ongoing difficulties with recruitment and retention.

The rise was also attributed to pay increases tied to the NHS pay restructuring deal, and pay deals made by individual councils.

Ken Mulkearn, senior research officer on the IDS Report said a general reason for the increase was centred on public sector employers? attempts to catch up with the private sector by making public posts more attractive.
