PAY DEAL FINALLY AGREED FOR STAFF IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND MOST ACADEMIES & SCHOOLS
Agreement has now been reached between the Trade Union Side and the Employers on the two-year 2016-18 pay offer.
All councils, schools and academies that follow the NJC for pay will be notified of this agreement so that they can make arrangements to pay the new salary increases and back pay as soon as possible.
The Joint Reviews of term-time working in schools, and the national pay spine, will begin shortly.
Many thanks to all GMB members for your patience and support during the prolonged conclusion to this pay round.
