Stand-By Payments Increase

From 1 April Stand-By payments in Sandwell Council are increasing from £20 (where they have been since 2010) to £24.52. UNISON successfully negotiated this increase after members working in Mental Health voted 100% for industrial action short of strike action in a consultative ballot.

This payment is received by 300 workers across the Council and for future years it will be indexed to the NJC Local Government pay awards.
