This year’s pay award has been particularly complex due to the nature and scope of the changes to the nationally agreed pay spines. These changes mean that employees will have to be aligned to the nationally agreed new spinal column point (SCP).
We are writing to you to make you aware, that Bradford Council has decided to take the following action to implement the nationally agreed pay spines:
The NJC agreement has been applied to the current existing pay and grading structure, without making any other changes at this time. There will need to be a further review of the pay and grading structure in due course.Any grades used by schools outside of the nationally agreed pay spines and the locally agreed pay and grading structure will automatically have a 2% increase applied to them from April 2019.
The link below highlights information that has been posted on Bradford Schools Online from the Bradford Council Payroll Service:
Where PACT HR customers do not use the Bradford Council Payroll Service, you will need to ensure that your current payroll provider is aware of the changes that need to be made to those staff paid on the NJC pay scales from April 2019. If you have any questions in relation to the implementation of the NJC pay award this year, please feel free to contact your HR Business Partner.
