UNISON has done some analysis of what the NJC Employers’ pay offer of £1290 means across the NJC pay spine – please click here.  The first few columns show the annual and hourly pay rates for each pay point for 2023, then what the impact of the 2024 pay offer would be, if implemented, including the percentage increase for each pay point.

If you are unsure what SCP you are on, please check your employers pay and grading structure.

The NJC Committee met on 22 May, where it considered the Employers’ offer from 1 April 2024 (England, Wales and Northern Ireland), and agreed to hold a consultation of members on the offer. The on-line consultation will run from early June until 28 June, so you will receive an email asking you to vote.  If you do not receive an email vote you can vote on-line here .  You will need your UNISON membership number or NI number to vote.  

The consultation will be held on the basis of recommending that members vote to REJECT the offer.
