Local Government Pay Claim 2022/23

28 September 2022

Result of UNISON Ballot

We have been advised of the result of the UNISON ballot on the 2022/23 pay offer as follows:

For acceptance                63.5%

For rejection                    36.5%

Turnout was 34%

It will be seen from the above that UNISON members have voted to accept the offer.

However, in order for this to be finalised and paid to employees, GMB and/or Unite members acceptance is necessary. They close their consultations on 14 October for Unite and 21 October for GMB.

We await both results in the hope of acceptance and early implementation.

A reminder that the Employers final offer was:

  • A £1,925 increase for all NJC pay points from 1 April 2022;
  • An increase in annual leave of 1 day for all employees from 1 April 2023 and
  • The deletion of pay point 1 from the spine with effect from 1 April 2023.
