The NJC pay award for 2022 to local government and school support staff was announced 25 July and is summarised below:-
- It’s a one year offer, payable from 1 April 2022, for £1925 on all pay points (note this is not a one off lump sum but a permanent uplift of £1,925 on all pay points)
- 4.04% on all allowances
- Deletion of SCP1 from 1 April 2023. This is without prejudice to future negotiations regarding next year
- Increase of one day in annual leave for all staff from 1 April 2023
Whilst this offer is better than recent years, it is still behind the current RPI rate of inflation at 12.3%.
There will now be a consultative ballot of members from Mid August up to 19 September. Please look out for your vote and please use it.
