Update - Pay Negotiations

We have had confirmation from UCEA that they met with the trade unions on 27th April and have now made their final offer. The details of the offer are as follows:

  • 2.4% increase on the lowest scale point (2)
  • An increase of £365 per annum on all points up to 16
  • 1.7% on all other spine points above point 16

This means that the lowest rate of pay for staff employed at Newcastle University will be £8.14 per hour which significantly exceeds the current National Living Wage. UCEA estimate that the average pay increase for staff covered by the negotiations will be equivalent to 3.2% as a result of incremental progression. This compares to other public sector awards which remain at 1%.

UCU, Unison and Unite are in the process of consulting with their members and all are describing it as the best that can be achieved through negotiation. UCEA are anticipating receiving confirmation of Unite and Unison’s consultation outcome by early July and UCU have indicated that they will respond by the end of July.

As indicated in earlier updates Newcastle University is committed to implementing the annual pay award when it is finally agreed.

You can get updates on the negotiations on the UCEA website
