Local Government Pay Claim for 2024/25

4 March 2024

The NJC unions have now presented their pay and conditions claim to the national employers for green book staff. The claim seeks:

  • An increase of at least £3,000 or 10 per cent (whichever is greater) on all spinal column points
  • Reviews of the gender, ethnicity and disability pay gaps in local government
  • A two-hour reduction in the working week, with no detriment
  • An additional day of annual leave for personal or well-being purposes (with term-time only staff also receiving a full day rather than a pro rata amount, that they can use at any time, including term time)
  • A phased approach to reaching a minimum pay rate of £15 an hour in a maximum of two years, sooner if possible

Next steps

The employers’ side will consult with representatives at a series of online briefings scheduled to take place up to the end of March. The feedback from those meetings will be taken into account before deciding on an offer to the unions claim.

We will keep you advised of developments.
