Voluntary Living Wage


It is acknowledged that cost of living pressures are difficult for everyone and there are a range of offers and support available to all staff, some of which are referenced (http://nyccintranet/news/cost-living-pressures-update). National pay negotiations for the 2022/23 NJC pay award are unlikely to conclude in the near future. To support the workforce Management Board have worked with UNISON and agreed for this financial year (2022-2023) that employees in Grades A, B and C who are currently paid on spinal points 1, 2, and 3 of the NJC pay scale will have their basic pay increased  to match the Voluntary Living Wage (currently £9.90 per hour). This will be paid in June with arrears backdated to  1st April 2022. When the 2022/23 pay award is agreed, if,  as we expect, the national pay award increases pay to above this level, then the new pay from the pay award will be applied.
