  • $\begingroup$ Sorry about my answer, I did not read "local axis" until after I wrote the answer. If I now understand you, my answer did not answer your question. I will leave it there so someone else my find it useful. $\endgroup$ – David Nov 24 '14 at 22:21

  1. Select your empty.
  2. Open the properties panel in the 3D view N
  3. Hover over the Z axis of the location field, RMB RMB > Add Single Driver.
    single driver
  4. Open the Graph Editor and switch it to Drivers.
  5. Select the driver on the left panel, then press N to open the properties and start editing the driver.

The easiest workaround I could find is to use the the Copy rotation Constraint to copy the global rotation from an empty (Which we will add the driver to) to the local rotation of the object.
