Breaking News - 2018/2019 NJC Pay Scales and Allowances

Agreement has now been reached between the National Employers and the NJC Trade Union Sides on rates of pay applicable from 1 April 2018 and 1 April 2019.

You will need to liaise with your payroll provider to ensure pay is backdated to 01 April 2018 in line with the new pay rates. As the April 2019 rates have also been agreed it should help with financial planning for next year.

The key features of the pay offer are:

  • A 16% pay increase for those currently on the lowest scale point (SCP) 6, over two years.
  • A pay increase of between 15% and 4.3% for those on the current SCPs 7 – 28.
  • 4.04% increase over two years, for those above the current SCP 29, including those above SCP 49.
  • A new pay spine from 2019, with new scale points 1-43 and even 2% pay gaps between SCPs 6-28.
