Have your say on pay 2019

Local Government & Schools

Have your say on pay

Discussions on your pay have now started. GMB is campaigning for Pay Justice and we need every member across Local Government and Schools to play their part in this important pay round.

 Headlines of the pay claim include

  • A real living wage of £10 per hour to be introduced for National Joint Council (NJC) scp 1 and a 10% increase on all other NJC/GLPC pay points
  • A one day increase to the minimum paid annual leave entitlement set out in the Green Book
  • A reduction in the standard working week set out in Green Book to 35 hours (34 hours in London) with no loss of pay
  • A comprehensive joint national review of the workplace causes of stress and mental health throughout local authorities

Four actions you can do to help us get the best outcome

GMB is campaigning for pay rises to be properly funded and we need every member to email their local councillors calling on them to support our motion to call on the Government to properly fund Local Government and Schools Pay. We've made this easy to do by filling in the form on the button below:
