NJC Pay - agreement reached on pay increase

17 Nov 2014 Alex Hastings    Last updated: 4 Dec 2014

A cost of living pay increase has been agreed by the NJC trade unions and local government employers which will see most workers on NJC pay getting a 2.2% increase from January 2015.

A pay increase of at least 2.2% has been agreed NJC payscales, with a higher percentage being applied to points 5-10. In the last month trade unions consulted with members on the latest pay proposal from the employers' side and a majority voted in favour of it. The trade union side had previously rejected the 1% offer and a one day strike was held in July 2014.

In addition to the percentage increase, for all pay points, a lump sum figure has been agreed for payment in December 2014 with a subsequent lump sum payment to be paid on points 26 and above in April 2015.

The agreed pay offer is below:

  • £1,065 (8.56 per cent) on Spinal Column Point (SCP) 5 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £1,000 (7.93 per cent) on SCP6 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £800 (6.19 per cent) on SCP7 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £550 (4.13 per cent) on SCP8 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £350 (2.55 per cent) on SCP9 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • £325 (2.32 per cent) on SCP10 with effect from 1 January 2015
  • 2.2 per cent on SCPs 11 and above 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 inclusive to be paid in December 2014 (pro-rated for part-time employees)
  • 0.45 per cent of proposed new salaries on SCPs 26-49 inclusive, 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)
