LOCAL GOVERNMENT – NJC Pay Claim 2020-2021

Most members pay has been devalued by 22% since 2009 when the cost of living (RPI) is compared to NJC pay increases.  For someone earning £18,000 this represents a £5,626 loss in earnings meaning a 26.6% pay increase is needed to catch up.  Meanwhile, prices for everyday goods continue to rise.  Against this backdrop our claim is reasonable in providing some catch up.
