Supporting Local Councils in Leicestershire & Rutland

Local Government Pay Deal Agreed

LRALC understand that UNISON has voted to accept the pay offer by a two to one margin and similarly the GMB have accepted. While UNITE members voted by 70% to reject this offer, however in-line with the constitution of the National Joint Council (NJC), UNITE accepts the collective majority of the other unions and the pay award will now be implemented.

The agreement, which is backdated to 1st April 2020, is for a 2.75% increase and an additional days' leave, bringing it up to 22 days for employees with less than 5 years service, which also applies from the above date.

The salary scales are awaited from NALC and will be circulated by LRALC as soon as they are received.
