Following further pay discussions with UNISON and UNITE the University is pleased to advise that we will be implementing the 2017 pay award for UNISON (Operations & Facilities (O&F) job family, levels 1 to 3 of the Administrative, Professional & Managerial (APM) job family and Childcare Services) and UNITE (Technical Services) represented staff groups in January.
The University presented a revised offer to UNITE and UNISON in November 2017 which the unions put to their members. Both UNISON and UNITE members voted to accept the revised offer.
The pay award will take effect in January 2018, with backdated pay to 1 August 2017.
Pay award: An increase of 1.7% will apply with effect from 1 August 2017 for points 17 and above on the 57-point scale, and all points on the Level 7 scale. There are enhancements to points 1 to 16 of the 57-point scale, including an additional enhancement that applies to staff at pay points 3, 4 and 5 effective from 6 November 2017.
For details of the enhancements applicable for staff at points 1-16 please visit the HR webpages.
The enhancement for staff at pay points 3, 4 and 5 means that the University will meet the new Voluntary Living Wage level (£8.75) from the date of its announcement (6 November 2017). The University position on the Voluntary Living Wage can be found on the HR website.
The 2017 Pay Award was implemented for UCU-represented staff in August 2017.
