Victory for transparency

We've got our first victory in our campaign for greater transparency on Chief Executives' pay (see the post immediately below for details of our campaign). According to the Northampton Chronicle here, Northampton Borough Council have agreed to publish the Chief Executive's pay of £138,000 as a "result of a pressure camapign by union bosses."

We congratulate them for their openess and let's hope the other 19 councils who did not give us the information on exactly what their Chief Excutive was paid follow suit.

Remember we want to know, not just their salary, but details of any bonuses, allowances or other perks they receive.
