*RESOLVED –

 

1.    That the implementation of the £9.90 per hour real living wage be approved from 1 April 2022 to enable Chesterfield Borough Council to continue to be a real living wage employer.

 

2.    That £34,000 (including oncosts) be transferred from the budget risk reserve to fund the increased pay bill during the 2022-2023 financial year and the ongoing costs be included within the revised assumptions for the medium-term financial plan as part of the budget process.

 

REASON FOR DECISIONS

 

Chesterfield Borough Council is committed to providing fair pay and good working conditions for employees. Increasing the minimum rate of pay to the level of the independently calculated real living wage will ensure that the wages paid to our employees are sufficient to meet the cost of living.
