THE OFFERS ARE SECRET (CONFIDENTIAL)
you must keep it that way.
I know some of you think this is a joke but the council are very serious.
You can tell immediate family (partners/parents) but not your distant cousins. But family must also keep it confidential.
You can tell legal advisers and professionals (who are bound by confidentiality anyway)
These clauses are standard practice. I’ve not had a single council not require these clauses. Or put the other way every single council insists on them. Doesn’t matter whether you think that’s right or wrong, you’ll be contractually bound. (And no telling someone before you sign doesn’t get you off the hook)
And yes councils have withheld payments when there have been breaches they can prove.
The easiest proof is discussing it with your line manager. They don’t know what you’re getting and some would love to know, if just to gossip. Managers are often told to report staff who break the agreement.
And just to repeat we cannot discuss your offer with your friends or their offer with you, even if your convinced your circumstances are the same. Your friends should not know your offer and you shouldn’t know hers.
It doesn’t matter how thrilled, or how angry, you are about the offer, they are all confidential.
Hard I know, but thems the rules.
The unions will be putting out similar messages.

And absolutely do not be stupid enough to put your numbers on Facebook, Instagram, twitter, tinder or any other social media.
