We help councils develop a framework for their role and responsibility as employers. This applies to the relationship between the Council`s employers and their employees, including individual rights and collective agreements. Following the JNC`s first guidelines (November 25, 11), you will find the attached supplementary note 1, which addresses some of the issues raised by local authorities at the national level regarding the remuneration of local government employees for the 2011/2012 wage policy (additional service- 12 Jan). The Green Paper, known as the Single Agreement, covers the remuneration and conditions of 1.4 million local government employees, from architects to school catering staff, cleaning staff and lawyers. These agreements are also used to determine the remuneration and conditions of local authority staff. National employers, which negotiate remuneration on behalf of 350 local authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, today submitted the offer to trade unions (5.2.20). More than one million employees are affected. As part of the 2016/18 wage agreement, the NJC agreed to conduct a joint review of life-long work to examine «an NJC approach that provides for fair, consistent and transparent contracts for school support staff and only out-of-school school staff.» In order to support this audit, NJC Joint Secretaryaries are advised by local government employer practitioners and a multi-Academy Trust and local union representatives. See unitetheunion.org/news-events/news/2020/june/council-workers-to-hold-ballot-over-insulting-183-a-day-pay-offer/ LGS employers today (17.2.11) informed local unions that they could not make a wage offer for 2011/2012. Please read the flyer below and the paper options. We believe that workers in local communities should be paid fairly, which is why we are working together to negotiate better pay with employers. The NJC has published guidelines on national restrictions in England. Unite – The Unite consultation (with recommendation to reject) continues until mid-August, so it is unlikely that this year`s wage cycle will be concluded before the end of August at the earliest (provided the three unions are able to obtain a common position on whether or not the offer will be accepted).
Employers are now encouraging local organisations to accept the rates set by HMRC, which can be found on the .gov.uk website: www.gov.uk/expenses-and-benefits-business-travel-mileage/rules-for-tax Please see below a circular that updates local government wage negotiations for 2020.
