Councils lead the way

Local authorities are taking a prominent role in cutting pay gaps by promoting living wages and cutting chief executive salaries, research has revealed. Campaign group One Society analysed pay policy statements from 173 of the 174 local authorities in England and Wales and submitted freedom of information requests. It found more than 20% of councils are committed to ensuring staff are paid a living wage. Some 12.5% have taken steps to cut chief executive salaries, while more than 10% also plan to enforce fixed ratios between the worst and best paid.
