Pay Campaign 2010

Aug 13 2010 - 14:55
As previously reported, the Local Government Employers (LGE) decided to make no pay increase offer for 2010/11 in response to union claims for the greater of 2.5% or £500. Talks with the LGE have stalled nationally, and they have given no indication they will abide by the Chancellor’s commitment of a £250 pay increase for all public sector workers earning less than £21,000, applying to 75% of NJC employees. The LGE has argued that the Chancellor’s comments do not apply to local government.

Hard working council officers deserve a pay increase this year!”

Local government employers have finally given their response to the 2010 pay claim from unions, saying there will be no pay offer but a pay freeze for all employees. In an effort to get an early settlement the three trade unions involved in the National Joint Council put forward the 2010 pay claim in early November.  This claim was for a one year deal of 2.5% or £500 whichever was the greater.
