Head of negotiating body disgusted at civil service pay rise

The head of an Island negotiating body says she’s ‘disgusted’ politicians and civil servants will receive a two per cent pay rise – just a few months after public sector manual workers agreed to a 12-month pay freeze.

The move – which also includes a point five per cent hike backdated to last April - will cost government in the region of £2 million, all from within existing department budgets.
