NJC Payscales

As you will be aware, a two year pay settlement was agreed with the respective support staff trade unions for 2018 and 2019. This will mean that there will be a further 2% increase on the NJC pay scales from April 2019. Furthermore, from April 2019, the NJC will introduce a revised pay spine. This will be based on the following;

  • A bottom rate of £9.00 per hour (£17,364) on new Spinal Column Point (SCP)1 (equivalent to old SCPs 6 & 7)
  • ‘Pairing off’ old SCPs 6-17 incl. to create new SCPs 1-6 incl
  • Equal steps of 2.0% between each new SCPs 1 to 22 incl. (equivalent to old SCPs 6-28 incl.)
  • By creating equal steps between these pay points, new SCPs 10, 13, 16, 18 and 21 are generated to which no old SCPs will assimilate. This means that in some organisations the current number of pay points in a grade might change
  • On new SCPs 23 and above (equivalent to old SCPs 29 and above), 2.0% increase on 2018 rate

All establishments that adhere to the nationally agreed NJC pay scales, will need to implement this revised pay spine. PACT HR customers will receive further details of how the new pay scale will be implemented in early January 2019, in time for implementation in April 2019.
