NJC Pay Campaign 2021/ 2022 - Branch Member Consultation


NJC Pay 2021 / 2022 Consultation


The link below contains proposed options for the NJC pay claim for 2021/22. The options were discussed and agreed by the UNISON NJC Committee on 5 October 2020.




Cheshire East UNISON have been asked to consult our members on three proposed options for the NJC pay claim for 2021/2022.

  • OPTION A : 5% or a £10 an hour pay rate, whichever is greater If NJC pay at the bottom is to reach two-thirds median earnings, by 2024, it needs to rise by 3.25%. Option A takes that figure and adds the current RPI inflation rate of 1.6%. It is then rounded up from 4.85% to 5%. This option also demands a £10 an hour fallback position for those on spinal column points 1 and 2. 
  • OPTION B : 8% or a £10 an hour pay rate, whichever is greater For those on spinal column point 1, an increase of around 8% is needed to reach a £10 an hour pay rate. Option B demands 8% for everyone, but again with a fallback position of a £10 an hour pay rate, if that would be greater. 
  • OPTION C: 10% : 10% pay increase for everyone, a repeat of the 2020 headline 

 Unison North West Regional Local Government Service Group have recommended Option C : 10% pay increase for everyone

An email will be sent to all Unison members on NJC Pay with a Survey link to register their preferred option.
