  • Untangling the jargon


    The government has announced that staff in England will only receive a 1% pay increase if they are at the top of their pay band but this will be a "non-consolidated sum".

    This means it will be given as an additional sum, and won't be added on to hourly rates.  So it won't count for unsocial hours or overtime payments.

  • Worth It


    UNISON is making sure pay stays at the top of the agenda, and continuing to campaign for better and fairer pay.

    We know that many of our members are lying awake at night worrying about their job or how to make ends meet while their pay is frozen but prices soar.
