National Pay Negotiations 2011/12

Following the most recent New Joint Negotiating Committee for Higher Education Staff (JNCHES) meeting on 11 July, the Universities and Colleges Employers’ Association (UCEA) has made a full and final offer of £150 on all points on the JNCHES pay spine which is under consideration by the Higher Education unions.

Until a resolution is reached the current pay rates will remain in force.  Any agreed increases would be backdated to 1 August 2011.

Local Pay Award 2011/12

Local Pay Bargaining takes place on an annual basis at Imperial, involving negotiations between the College and the Joint Trades Unions (JTUs).

Following the last local pay bargaining meeting on 6 July, the JTUs have confirmed their formal acceptance of the College’s local pay offer of 2% or £500 whichever is the greater effective from 1 August 2011.

The College’s pay scales and schedules of allowances have been updated to incorporate this increase. This applies to all staff on terms and conditions subject to local pay bargaining. Payment at the appropriate new rates will be made in August 2011 salaries.

For copies of the revised scales and allowances, please view the HR Salaries web page.
