NJC Pay - Strike called off over new pay proposal

13 Oct 2014 Alex Hastings    Last updated: 14 Oct 2014

Further industrial action by local government workers for 14 October 2014 has been called off following an announcement that the trade unions and employers will consult members on new pay proposals.

For those of you in the sector interested in or using NJC payscales, we have been keeping you updated on developments in NJC pay negotiations between local government employers and trade unions. In a recent development a further strike planned by GMB, Unison and Unite the Union for 14 October 2014 has been called off. An announcement was made on 9 October 2014 that the trade unions and employers will consult members on new pay proposals. This follows industrial action by local government workers on 10 July 2014 after a 1% increase offered by the employer’s side was rejected by trade union members.

The proposals do not represent a formal pay offer and are subject to full consultation but will cover the period from 1 January 2015 – 31 March 2016. The pay proposals being consulted on are for:

  • 2.2 % on SCPs 11 and above with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £1,065 (8.56%) on Spinal Column Point (SCP) 5 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £1,000 (7.93%) on SCP6 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £800 (6.19%) on SCP7 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £550 (4.13%) on SCP8 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £350 (2.55%) on SCP9 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £325 (2.32%) on SCP10 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • Removal of SCP5 with effect from 1 October 2015
  • £325 non-consolidated payment on SCPs 5, 6 & 7 to be paid in December 2014 (pro-rated for part-time employees)
  • £150 non-consolidated payment on SCPs 8, 9 & 10 to be paid in December 2014 (pro-rated for part-time employees)
  • £100 non-consolidated payment on SCPs 11-25 incl to be paid in December 2014 (pro-rated for part-time employees)
  • 0.45 per cent of proposed new salaries on SCPs 26-49 incl, of which £100 to be paid in December 2014 and the remaining balance to be paid in April 2015 (pro-rated for part-time employees).

We will keep you updated on the outcome of the consultation on the pay proposal.  In the meantime further information can be obtained from the Local Government Association and trade union websites.
