More than 2000 staff across council and its organisations are set to receive the hourly wage of $20.20, around one-fifth of its total staff. …

The council’s 2015-16 annual report states just over 11,000 people are employed by the council and its council-controlled organisations, such as Auckland Transport and Watercare.

In the same report, 9360 staff members are reported to be employed full time.

The council has set a target of completing implementation by 2019, with the council calculating by that time the hourly rate will be $21, allowing for inflation.

The policy implementation will cost $1.9 million in the first year.

All staff will be paid at least $18 an hour from September.

It doesn’t include contractors, and is being funded by savings within council.
