UNISON has accepted the Local Government Association’s two-year pay offer, covering the period April 2018 – March 2020.
The key features of the pay offer are:
- A 16% pay increase for those currently on the lowest scale point (SCP) 6, over two years.
- A pay increase of between 15% and 4.3% for those on the current SCPs 7 – 28.
- 4.04% increase over two years, for those above the current SCP 29, including those above SCP 49.
- A new pay spine from 2019, with new scale points 1-43 and even 2% pay gaps between SCPs 6-28.
What does this mean for you?
The offer will need to be applied to your local situation because each employer has their own grading structure. Your UNISON branch activists and UNISON staff will ensure that every employer fully implements the offer.
