Bristol City Council workers receive 'living wage'

All Bristol City Council employees earning below a 'living wage' hourly rate of £7.30 will receive a one-off lump sum that brings their pay up to this level.

The details of the pay award have been unanimously agreed. It follows a commitment to address the issue of low pay in the authority by the Council in March.

Bristol is the only authority in the South West region that is proposing to make a pay award to those staff earning below the living wage.
