Thanks to everyone who voted in our ballot on the proposed changes to the pay structure. 87% voted to accept the offer which means UNISON will notify NCC a majority of our members accepted the offer. This means UNISON have a clear mandate to agree to sign off an agreement making these changes to the pay structure.
We hope the new pay structure will be implemented on 1st April 2019.
Of the 13% who voted against, most shared UNISON’s concerns about having three grades with 5 Spinal Column Points (SCP’s). This is something UNISON will revisit with NCC in 3 years’ time. Meanwhile there will be an opportunity to address the wider issue of rates of pay when the next national pay claim is submitted. Between now and then we need to get more NCC workers in UNISON and more of those members participating in consultation ballots.
Please contact me if you want to help us with this.
