We have provided a National Pay Offer Grade table to show the grade information for all Barnet Council workers.
The Barnet UNISON National Pay Offer Grade table will show:
- Your current grade with hourly rates
- Your current grade with the employer’s proposal with new hourly rates
- Your current grade with Joint Trade Union demand with new hourly rates
What is the Joint Trade Union demand?
The Joint Trade Union demand was £2k or RPI whichever is greater. (this was before the escalating Cost of Living Crisis had taken hold of our economy.
Retail Price Index (RPI) is currently 11.8% which means the employers offer is less than UNISONs demand for all Council grades.
However, in the news they are predicting RPI will reach 18%.
On top of this bad news there is a National Energy Bill crisis. The average household energy costs are predicted to reach as much as £3,400 a year. Energy bills have tripled since the start of the year.
All the other Cost of Living Crisis pressures such as fuel, food, rent, mortgages, travel are all increasing with no sign of this ending.
It is important that UNISON secures the best pay deal for our members.
In the coming weeks we will begin a consultative National Pay ballot of our members.
In the meantime if you want any further information on the National Pay offer, please ring Barnet UNISON on 0208 359 2088 or email email@example.com
