The information on this page sets out the pay awards received by the differing categories of local government officers.

When compared with the Consumer Prices Index which is historically lower than the Retail Prices Index, it can be seen that there is a significant reduction in real terms of local government pay for all categories of Officer over the five year period. The compound cumulative effect will be even greater than indicated.
