Pay Negotiations

The first set of national HE pay negotiations took place on the 20th April. The Joint HE unions presented the national pay claim which they had submitted the previous day. The unions vigorously pressed the case for a need for a decent pay award this year linked to inflation to offset recent poor pay settlements in the sector. The employers responded, presenting their own background paper, which predictably sought to plead poverty. After a frank exchange of views the employers undertook to respond to the claim by the next scheduled meeting at the end of May. The unions made it clear that they expected an offer in response to their claim at that meeting. A copy of the claim and the employers background paper can be found at this link Joint Pay Claim
