Implementation of Voluntary Living Wage pdf icon PDF 73 KB


The HR Business Partner submitted a report recommending for approval the Implementation of Voluntary Living Wage.


Chesterfield Borough Council introduced the voluntary living wage in April 2016. The voluntary living wage remained in place until the national review of NJC pay in 2018 because the review raised the lowest rate of pay above the voluntary living wage from April 2019. The national pay award for 2020 was currently being negotiated but was unlikely to be resolved until Summer 2020 at the earliest.


Consultation with Unions had taken place and the proposals had been endorsed.




That the payment of the voluntary living wage for 2020/2021 be approved.
