Equal Pay

The Council strives for equal pay. An equal pay audit has been completed for employees covered by the National Joint Council pay and conditions of service. The Council has been working closely with the trade unions and the pay grades relating to NJC staff were jointly agreed between the Council and the trade unions.


As part of our on-going commitment we also have a comprehensive training programme to ensure all of our staff have an awareness and an understanding of the principles and performance associated with delivering of services in a fair and supportive manner.
