Staff and trade unions

In order to provide transparency over its payments to staff, the council publishes a list of all council staff earning a salary of more than £50,000 a year.

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets Statement of Accounts, including archived versions, are already in the public domain and shows the salaries for our chief officer grades.
