Rise up to get pay up, Council and school pay 2023

UNISON has been campaigning for a decent pay rise for council and school workers, calling for a pay increase of inflation plus 2% – based on the Treasury’s annual forecast for RPI for 2023, this amounted to 12.7% at the time of the pay claim.

However, the local government employers have responded with an offer of a flat rate increase of £1,925 (with less for part-time and term-time workers).
