Media Stories Re 'Excessive bonuses' at City Council

By on 20/01/2010 in News

Earlier this month several national newspapers ran stories detailing the alleged 'excessive' bonuses paid to some staff at Birmingham City Council.

 These stories ran in the media as a result on an employment tribunal currently being heard in Birmingham, which relates to a historical previous remuneration structure.

 The City Council very much agrees that the old structure was unsuitable.

 Such bonuses were abolished as part of the authority's Pay and Grading Review.

 The particular figures highlighted at the tribunal, and subsequently in the media, related to the 2006/7 financial year, prior to this review taking place.


As a result of the review the Council now has fair, transparent and equitable payment structure in place, which provides a fair wage for a fair job, to all our staff, and for the first time falls within the acceptable levels of the Equal Opportunities Commission guidance.
