We have received a pay offer from the NJC Employers’ Side. The offer letter is attached, and the key points are:

  • Full and final offer
  • £1290 on all pay points from 1st April
  • That’s equivalent to 5.77% on point 2 and 2.5% on point 43.       Full breakdown here Copy of NJC pay offer 2024 – value of pay – 2022 FOI data
  • 2.5% on all pay points above 43 and below chief officer level
  • 2.5% on all NJC allowances
  • Rejection of our demands for a shorter working week, extra day of leave, £15 an hour minimum rate by 2026
  • Offer of pay gap data discussions
  • Re-committed to reviewing the pay spine

Our claim is for: • An increase of at least £3,000 or 10% (whichever is greater) on all spinal column points

In addition:

  • A 2-hour reduction in the working week with no detriment
  • An additional day of annual leave for personal or well-being purposes (with term time only staff also receiving a full day rather than a pro rata amount, that they can use at any time, including term time)
  • A phased approach to reaching a minimum pay rate of £15 an hour in a maximum of two years, sooner if possible

So the Offer does not live up to even half the claim
