National Pay Negotiations 2020-21
UCEA has confirmed with representative national unions that due to the financial pressures and uncertainty facing the sector that they are not offering an uplift on the pay spine for 2020-21. UCEA has offered further meetings to negotiate on other aspects of the Joint Unions' claim in the coming months. Nationally UCU and Unison have rejected the proposal to apply no uplift to the values of the pay spine points for 2020-21. UCEA in response has stated that collectively employers cannot increase the values of the pay spine points during 2020-21 and that they have no mandate to improve the offer on pay.
The University will not be awarding any pay uplift for staff outside of national bargaining arrangements.
Any staff member due an increment to their pay will have received this in the August pay run.
