National Joint Council (NJC) pay offer

The Local Government Association (LGA) has made a two-year pay offer from 1 April 2018 – 31 March 2020 for council, school and other members on NJC pay.

These are increases on NJC scale points NOT grades. You will need to see what they mean within your local pay and grading structure – please check with your branch.

From 1 April 2019, the LGA is proposing a revised pay spine. Pay scales comparing current pay with the LGA’s offer for 2018 – 2020 are shown on the following pages.

UNISON’S response to the offer

Because the LGA is proposing a revised pay spine as part of the offer, the UNISON NJC Committee has decided not to make a recommendation on the offer until your branch reps have attended briefings to explain its impact on local pay and grading structures.

These will take place in early January.

The NJC Committee will then meet on 23 January to decide its recommendation on the offer and the timetable for consulting members.
