Pay deal welcomed.

UNION leaders at Coventry City Council have welcomed a new two- year pay deal for government workers.

The increase, amounting to 10.9 per cent or pounds 5.32 an hour for the lowest- paid workers, follows a one-day national strike last month.

A joint Local Government Pay Commission will oversee future increases.

Richard Harty, branch secretary of Coventry Unison, said: "The proposals represent a move towards a fairer system of paying our members, particularly the lowest paid."

Cllr Jack Harrison, city council cabinet member for human resources, said: "We are pleased that the proposals cover two years and address some of the problems of the lower paid members of staff, and we welcome the Local Government Pay Commission which will look at pay and conditions in the future."
