Agenda Items

 

1.    Napier City Council Remuneration Policy

Type of Report:

Legal Reference:

Local Government Act 2002

Document ID:

757537

Reporting Officer/s & Unit:

Sue Matkin, Manager People & Capability

 

1.1   Purpose of Report

The purpose of the Remuneration Policy is to provide principles to guide the setting of remuneration for Napier City Council employees.

 

At the Meeting

The Manager People and Capability spoke to the report, noting that the Remuneration Policy (Policy) is reviewed every three years and that the proposed changes are aimed at demonstrating a transparent and fair approach to determining remuneration for Council staff. The guiding principles outlined in the Policy are intended to assist staff and management to understand how remuneration is set.

In response to questions from Councillors, the following points were clarified:

·         The Policy does allow room for collective bargaining.

·         The Policy and remuneration framework have been developed in conjunction with input from the Unions.

·         This work also follows a staff survey, with a 59% response rate, that will lead into reviews in other areas also. Part of the staff engagement was around pay.

·         The Policy does not preclude the Living Wage being considered by Council in the future.

·         Reviews of the remuneration framework will be aligned with reviews of the Policy.

a.     Endorse the Officers recommendation for Council to adopt the Remuneration Policy 2019-22
