Salary Increments 2024

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


RESOLVED that: the Employment Committeeapproves the payment of salary increments for the 2024/25 financial year (effective from 1 April 2024) to eligible employees (not currently at the top of their pay grade), whose protected TUPE terms and conditions of employment have no contractual entitlement to incremental progression.


Reasons for Recommendation:

a) to support a fair and transparent approach to pay and reward;

b) to enable the council to attract and retain its employees and recognise their

ongoing hard work and contribution in supporting the delivery of the

organisation’s priorities and services;

c) to support the council’s ambition to be an employer of choice.


Alternative Options Considered


The council could decide to award salary increments only to employees who are contractually entitled to them; however the impact on employee morale and the council’s ability to retain talent would likely be adversely impacted by this decision.
