Good Afternoon,

I wish to know 'How many people are employed by Cardiff County
Council on annual starting salaries of £30,000 or more in each
category (Up to whatever the top figure is) together with job
titles and actual salary range'? also, 'WHAT PERCENTAGE IN ADDED
I appreciate of course that it would be extremely difficult to give
exact figures, even in percentage wise, in respect of extra costs
over and above salary, and an honest rough percentage would do.
I am assuming and expect of course, that the Council have costed
what cash it will, and is taking to employ an individual over and
above any particular salary shown.........

Example...... 1.... Corporate Manager £51,238.00 to £55,337 say 25% (example)
1 Curriculum Worker-Splash Project
1 Customer Services Manager
13 Deputy Headteacher (Primary) £35,794.
27 Deputy Headteacher (Primary)

Right to the top of the Salary Range and Job Title(s)

To guide you I made a similar request in 2008 to Powys County
Council, and they answered as above. The figures above are just a
little of it, and of course the full result can be found at the
Powys County Council Website under F-2008-00287.
I am however requesting extra information from you, as per capital
lettered above.

F-2008-00287 How many people are employed by Powys County Council
on annual starting salaries of £30,000 or more, (Up to whatever the
top figure is) together with job titles and actual salary range?

Original Request put in........October 7, 2008

Please note that anything in capital letters up above is only meant
to highlight something, and not to 'Shout' so to speak.

Best Regards

Yours Sincerely

Kenneth Thain.

Well then, looking at the result just goes to show exactly why our Council Taxes are so big.

THIS is an example of exactly why the Government need to tackle the Public Sectors Pay and Pensions.
