The National body looking at our pay claims narrowly voted to accept the Government’s pay offer, rather than progress to a national industrial action ballot, after several Regions expressed doubt over a lack of support for such support.
Members had voted 64% to reject the offer but on a low turnout. Not only does this demonstrate the importance of voting in union ballots but it also means that our pay rates have been settled for 2016 and 2017.
The rates on how they relate to Sandwell Council’s grades are listed here and should be in your pay packets in June. Please click onto the link to display the pay rates.
