A Leeds City Council spokeswoman, said:
“The trade unions have suggested some fundamental changes to the pay and grading structure. Clearly these changes can’t be considered lightly, it is complex and requires legal and financial advice.
“We can’t rush this work, and they too have acknowledged that more time is needed to fully explore their proposals and check both the affordability and potential legal risks. We have committed to speaking with them again on Monday and will be meeting with them again as soon as possible next week.”
