Unions look for fair pay

February 2, 2018 12:10 PM

For most employees of Wiltshire Council the annual pay review is negotiated by the National Joint Council (NJC) which comprises the national employers and the three recognised trade unions, UNISON, Unite and GMB.

The national employers have proposed a two year pay award, including new arrangements to cope with minimum wage legislation.

For the last few years the national pay awards have been limited to 1% for the majority of staff, with some staff at the lower end of the pay scale receiving a higher increase in order to meet the requirements of the National Living Wage.

This year's proposal is for a 2% increase.

Unite and UNISON have voted to reject the offer. All three unions are now out to consultation with their members. The consultations close in early March when the result of the ballot will be announced.
