The employers for council workers and school support staff have finally made a pay offer that was due on 1 April 2021.
“The National Employers wish to make the following one-year offer:
• With effect from 1 April 2021, an increase of 1.50 per cent on all NJC pay
points 1 and above
• Completion of the outstanding work of the joint Term-Time Only review
UNISON head of local government Jon Richards said: “This is a disappointing offer, especially after a year in which council staff have done so much to help local communities gripped by the pandemic.
Council staff will feel that their efforts over the past 15 months haven’t been recognised.
“Unions will now discuss the offer with their national local government committees before formally responding. It’s likely they’ll want the employers to think again and come back and negotiate an offer that better reflects the worth and value of the dedicated school and council workforce.”
