Local Government NJC Pay Offer 2008/09

The national employers are offering the following: -

A 2.45% pay rise on all pay points from scale point 7 giving a rate of £6.55 at scale point 7

An additional flat rate increase of £100 on scale points 4, 5 and 6 giving an increase of 3.3% and pay rates of £6.20, £6.28 and £6.37 respectively

As part of the agreement they also want us to “seek to” conclude the review of the Green Book by 31 December 2008 and;

To “seek to” reach agreement on pay awards for 2009 and 2010 by 31 December 2008.

The UNISON National Joint Council Committee’s recommendation is to reject the employers offer. However, members should be aware that, in our view, it would require substantial, all-out strike action starting with two days consecutive strike action and escalating to further consecutive action of more than two days if there were to be any chance of re-opening negotiations and securing an improved offer

Vote in the UNISON Office.

The closing date for the ballot is 6 May 2008.
