Report of Director of HR and Customer

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Elaine Harrison, HR Consultant, presented the report, which detailed the Council’s Pay Policy Statement 2021/22.

 

It was stated that under the Localism Act, the statement must be approved by a meeting of Full Council by no later than March each year and, as such, this report will be considered at a Council meeting being held in March 2021.

 

The Committee stated that while it was pleasing to note that Nottingham, when compared to most other Core Cities, had a lower pay difference gap, the Council could not be complacent about the gender pay gap and needed to continue to work towards a real balance. Also, although it met the national living wage, it needed to work towards a more realistic ‘living wage’.

 

Resolved to note the Pay Policy Statement 2021/22 and that it will be considered at Full Council on 08 March 2021.
