Liz McQue - Chief Executive
North West Employers acts as a†focal point for all local authorities and joint boards within the region, providing advice, guidance, communication routeways and support†for sustaining positive employment relationships with a large and diverse workforce.
Our workforce and employment services deliver three key functions:
Linking national and local organisations
Developing and communicating the North West's contribution to national negotiating arrangements on pay and terms and conditions including pensions. Ensuring effective communication of changes and their potential impact in the sector. Formal regional procedures exist with Trade Union partners to support resolution of potential disputes.
Supporting, effective, efficient and fair employers
Supporting an employer role that is characterised by good practice and value for money. Employment conditions, pay and rewards are fair and appropriate and employees have the opportunity to make their best contribution to modern public services.
Sustaining an effective and flexible workforce
Maintaining a strategic and locally relevant view of how the local government workforce should continue to develop to provide quality public services. Re-designing services and reviewing the most effective ways of organising our employees are continual challenges, alongside the need to achieve significant improvements in cost efficiency.
