UNISON Northern Ireland

NJC Pay Offer 2020

In July, UNISON members in education and local government who are on contracted NJC terms and conditions voted to accept the employers' final offer of 2.75%. This was the best that coulld be achieved by negotiation.

The final pay offer includes:

  • a 2.75% pay increase;
  • a one-day increase in the Green Book minimum level of annual leave. This would represent an increase from 21 days to 22 days per annum and would not impact on the entitlement for those with more than 5 years' service.
  • joint work on mental health.

It is clear that the offer falls well short of what members need and deserve. However, UNISON's NJC Committee believes that we have reached the end of our discussions with the employers and so this is the best pay offer achievable by negotiation.
