Petition: Extend pay freeze to local councils

The Government has announced a freeze on salaries for public sector workers paid more than $100,000. We say the same needs to be extended to local council town halls.

At minimum, councils should freeze their total spend on payroll. That way any increases in pay will need to be from attrition or efficiencies in other roles.

“I call on the Government’s public sector wage freeze to be extended to local government."
