Update on NJC Pay for Salford City UNISON Members

This post is for those covered by NJC Pay, which includes the vast majority of Salford City UNISON members working for the City Council, Salix Homes, Salford Community Leisure, Aspire, Integrated Care Organisation at SRFT and Schools.

UNISON has accepted the NJC Pay Offer that we have recently consulted you over.

The overwhelming majority of members who responded to the consultation in our branch voted to reject the offer and the position of our region – the North West – has been to maintain a view that the offer should be rejected.

Unfortunately though, out of UNISON’s 12 regions only the North West has maintained this position. The other 11 regions have voted to accept and as this is a national offer we are tied to that decision.

I know that many of you reading this will be disappointed (as I am), but it is important to remember that the only reason the Government has moved beyond the 1% offers of previous years is because of the hard work we have done.

Unionised workplaces remain better paid than non-unionised workplaces and while we in Salford and the North West felt we could have fought for more, we recognize that national pay bargaining is still best for our members.

Thank you to those of you who took part in the recent consultation, particularly our stewards and officers who worked so hard to get ballot papers to members and to set up workplace meetings.

The process is still not fully complete and for that reason I can’t tell you when this will be reflected in your pay packet. However, if it is not resolved in time for April’s pay then any money owed for April will need to be paid in May.

If anybody has any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks, Steve

This morning more than 1000 people marched through Salford to save our five outstanding Council nurseries.

Well done everyone! That was amazing!!!

We’ve only been campaigning 5 weeks and we’ve already won funding to keep them open for another 18 months.

Time to catch a quick breather and then carry on fighting to keep these nurseries open as Council nurseries beyond September 2019.

No closures. No privatisation. We demand 100% public funded Council nurseries and don’t dare stand in our way!
