Was this meant to happen ?

Bridgend seems to be the latest council having a spat over the local government job evaluation scheme. Last week Denbighshire made the headlines when some new pay line seemed to disadvantage essential care workers.

It seems very strange that at a time when 'headline' pay rates are causing problems we also see a squeeze on some low paid jobs as a result of this whole process.

I recall Edwina had to reflect on the effects of the Agenda for Change on health workers, will the same process effect local government workers?

Lots of water yet to go under the bridge but politically it all seems a bit strange.

(I suppose declaration of interest required as a current local government employee!).
