East Midlands Councils represents the collective interests of local councils to national organisations and government. We provide a communications link between the national employers, Local Government Employers, and authorities within the region.
This enables councils in the region to inform negotiations and developments at a national level with local government pay and conditions.
As part of our core service to authorities, we provide a network on pay and rewards, including job evaluation. East Midlands Councils also provides pay benchmarking information and local authorities can benefit from an on-line pay benchmarking system – E Pay Check.
We also provide a job evaluation and equal pay advice service on a consultancy basis.
We ensure local councils are provided with information on developments at national level with negotiations and agreements reached on different groups of employees. Click on the links below for the most recent circulars and developments for each group:-
