UNISON CRITICAL OF AUDIT COMMISSION COUNCIL PAY STUDY

Local government union Unison has criticised the Audit Commission for inciting employers to scrap parts of nationally negotiated agreements.

Today's AC paper on pay in local government recommends more flexibility, local pay rates and a control on the use of annual increments.

Unison deputy local government head Dennis Reed said: 'The Audit Commission has gone too far. It is reckless to incite employers to ditch parts of our nationally negotiated agreements. Damaging local disputes could result from following the so called 'good practice' advocated by the Commission'.

He added that 'the Commission has missed the mark on budget cuts. It is ludicrous for the Commission to pluck out of the air a projected £500m savings which can be achieved only by cutting pay and jobs'.
