NJC 2023/24 Headline Claim Consultation – St Helens Branch

NJC Pay Claim 2023/24

At a recent meeting of the UNISON North West Regional Local Government Service Group the results of the NJC pay claim consultation were as follows;

  • 29 out of 35 Branches responded
  • 27 voted YES (they agree with the claim of RPI + 2%)
  • 2 voted NO (they don’t agree)
  • Within St Helens Branch, 906 members voted YES and 338 members voted NO

Our NJC Reps will take this position and the points raised at the meeting to the NJC Committee on 10 January 2023 where the national results will be considered.

You should note that nationally the results show 95.71% of responding branches support the claim of RPI + 2%.

The NJC Executive joint trade union side meeting will hopefully meet later that week to finalise the claim. The claim will (we are told) be submitted in January 2023 and, further updates will be provided once available.
