EAC – Band 5 Job Evaluation

We have again today written to the LAS management to request progress on the resolution of the disparity between the EAC current pay band and the result of the Job Evaluation panel that took place last week. As we wrote back in April we have been campaigning to the LAS management for some time that the development of the EAC role since its inception has got to a point that…
