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.
– Steve Paines, Unite Trade Union Convenor
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.
