Around 100 waste workers employed by Bath and North East Somerset council are set to receive a 10% pay rise.

Loaders and LGV drivers employed by the council will see an immediate 10% uplift in pay. All other waste service workers will see their pay grade increased by one level.

The deal is on top of the Local Government Association’s (LGA) offer for council workers across England, Wales and Northern Ireland of £1,925 for 2022.

The council workers will be balloted on whether or not to accept the LGA’s offer but will receive the locally negotiated pay rise regardless of the outcome.

Unite regional officer Andy Worth said: ‘Due to the strength of union membership within the workforce, waste services workers were able to go through the industrial action process to trigger negotiations.

‘Following successful talks under the auspices of the conciliation service Acas, Unite was able to secure a regrade of all waste service employees, including a 10 per cent increase for loaders and LGV drivers.’
