***Backdated Pay Award***
Argyll and Bute Council’s pensions and payroll team is working hard to ensure the backdated pay award will be paid to council employees before the end of March. This follows the Scottish Joint Council for Local Government Employees (SJC) agreeing the following three year pay deal for LGE employees:
• 2018/19 an increase of 3.5% (capped at £80,000, on or above which a flat rate of £1600 will apply).
• 2019/20 an increase of 3%
• 2020/21 an increase of 3%
Please note that the backdated pay will not be included in today’s (March 14) regular salary run, but will come through by the end of March as a supplementary payment.
