National Pay Award 2015/16

UCEA (the Universities and Colleges Employers’ Association) has advised that, following the conclusion of the national pay negotiations, institutions can now implement the 2015/16 national pay offer. The College’s national pay scales have therefore been updated to incorporate a rise of 1% effective from 1 August 2015 for those staff remaining on national non-clinical rather than local pay scales.

Payment at the appropriate new rates will be made in November 2015 salaries and will be backdated to 1 August 2015.

National Pay Award 2014-15 implementation

UCEA (the Universities and Colleges Employers’ Association) has confirmed that all five trade unions have accepted their final pay offer.

The College’s national pay scales have therefore been uprated to incorporate a rise of  2% with effect from 1 August 2014 for those staff remaining on national non-clinical rather than local pay scales. Payment at the appropriate new rates will be made in August 2014 salaries.

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

Local Pay Award 2014-15 implementation

Following the College’s final pay offer dated 3 July 2014, UCU has confirmed their acceptance, however Unite and Unison have not been able to agree the pay award. The College has carefully considered its position and the representations of the Unions during the pay bargaining process and following on from this Provost’s Board has decided to implement the local pay offer of 2% effective from 1 August 2014.

The College’s pay scales and schedules of allowances have been updated to include the above mentioned increase, which applies to all staff on terms and conditions of service subject to local pay bargaining. Payments at the appropriate new rates will be made in August 2014 salaries. The revised scales are now available. Documentary background to the pay negotiations process is also available to view.
