The Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) has informed the higher education institutions participating in the 2018-19 New JNCHES pay round that they should implement the pay uplift offered with effect from 1 August 2018.
The advice follows the conclusion of the dispute resolution process through which there has been a settlement with GMB but no indication that a settlement is achievable with UCU, EIS, UNISON and Unite.
UCEA’s final offer of a 2% uplift on base pay for spinal points 16 and above and a £425 increase on points 2 to 15 will be implemented in the September pay. The updated salary scales are available on the HR website.
