We've submitted our pay claim for £1 an hour more with the employers. The fight to get local government workers fair pay, for a fair day's work goes on.
NJC Green Book pay ballot 2014
Scotland for information only
The employers offer for NJC Green Book 2014 is 1% for those on pay points 11 and above - that is 1.8% below inflation.
To avoid falling below the National Minimum Wage in 2014 and 2015 the employers have had to increase the lower pay points by more than 1%.
• £580 on pay point 5 £6.85 an hour
• £550 on pay point 6 £6.82 an hour
• £400 on pay point 7 £6.90 an hour
• £275 on pay point 8 £7.05 an hour
• £200 on pay point 9 £7.22 an hour
• £175 on pay point 10 £7.35 an hour
This still leaves thousands of members earning less than the Living Wage and local government workers as the lowest paid across the public sector. This offer does nothing to address the 18% you have lost in earnings since 2010 and the gap in pay of over £2000 you have suffered since 2010.
Unite is carrying out a postal consultative ballot and we are urging you to vote NO and REJECT this derisory offer.
The ballot papers will be sent out on 9/10 April and the ballot will close on 30 April.
Please use this poster in your workplaces and encourage all your members to VOTE NO and prepare to take Action for Fair Pay.
