Cabinet will today (Thursday) consider the detail of introducing the Living Wage following a commitment given by the Council Leader in June.
Cllr Andrew Morgan outlined last June why he felt it was the right decision for the Council, its staff and the wider community, for the local authority to become a living wage employer.
Detailed proposals to introduce the living wage from October 2015 will now be discussed today (Thursday) by the Cabinet.
Over three and a half thousand Council employees will benefit from this decision. The report recommends moving to £7:50 per hour this October and to £7:85 per hour from 1st April 2016.
County Borough Councillor Andrew Morgan, Leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, said:
“In June I set out why I felt the Council should become a living wage employer and subsequently asked Council Officers to bring forward proposals for consideration by Cabinet which we will now discuss next week.
