Cost of Living Crisis one off payment to lowest grades except in community schools.
Yesterday Barnet Council has announced in an email to all staff that it will be making a Cost-of-Living payment of £150 to all non-schools’ staff on grades A-E.
Whilst Barnet UNISON welcomes this payment for our lowest paid members, we are concerned that another group of low paid female members working in Barnet Council Community Schools will not be receiving this payment from the Council.
We have been informed that Barnet Council will be writing to all the Community schools to advise them of the payment.
Barnet UNISON has asked for Barnet Council to support Community Schools to enable them to make this much needed payment to their staff.
