Newcastle Councillors Say No To Pay Rise

The money will be spent on Wallsend

Newcastle Councillors Say No To Pay Rise

Newcastle councillors have decided not to give themselves a pay rise.

Unlike their Lake Macquarie counterparts earlier this week, they voted last night against accepting a wage increase recommended by an independent tribunal.

Instead they'll re-allocate the money on improving Wallsend's town centre.

It means Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes won't be getting an extra $23,000 in her pay packet.
