Pay Deal To Be Discussed Today

Posted: Wed, 13 Dec 2017 12:12 by Danny Moody

A national pay offer for local government employees has been announced. The National Employers organisation has made a "final" pay offer to the NJC local government unions which will be considered at a meeting on 13 December 2017 as part of the national negotiations.

The headline figure is a 2% increase for 2018/19 and another 2% for 2019/20. However, this particular pay offer is more complex than usual because it proposes a greater increase to Spinal Column Points 6 – 19 in 2018/19 and a complete revamp of the scales in 2019/20.

For 2018/19 the pay offer is:

  • SCP 15, £900 (equivalent to 5.272%)
  • SCP 16, £900 (equivalent to 5.167%)
  • SCP 17, £900 (equivalent to 5.064%)
  • SCP 18, £800 (equivalent to 4.427%)
  • SCP 19, £700 (equivalent to 3.734%)
  • SCPs 20 and above, 2.0%

The figures for SCP 15 - 19 are for full time workers (37 hours per week) and should be prorated for part time employees.

If agreed, the new scales would apply from 1 April 2018, so need to be taken into account for 2018/19 budgeting.
