SHOP VOUCHER PAY PLAN PANNED

An Oxfordshire CC proposal to pay staff in shop vouchers has come under fire from Unison.

The council wants to save money on national insurance contributions by allowing staff to receive part of their wages in vouchers for major shopping chains.

It says if 25% of staff opt to get 10% of their pay in vouchers, it could save as much as£500,000.

Chief executive John Harwood said it was a legitimate scheme and staff would certainly not be compelled to take part. The council was canvassing the level of interest before deciding whether to introduce it, he said.

But Unison branch secretary Mark Fysh said the proposal was akin to 'a company shop' and was unacceptable.
