Single Pay Spine
In November, Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) advised its member HE institutes to include the 1% uplift from the 2013/2014 pay negotiations in the December pay for all colleagues covered by JNCHES pay bargaining. The 1% uplift is to be applied to all pay points on the national pay spine:
The national pay negotiations process for 2013-14 concluded with UCEA representing the Higher Education employers, and the HE trade unions failing to reach agreement over a pay settlement.
The University regrets that the dispute is still ongoing, but supports the recommendation from UCEA to implement the pay increase in the interest of the overwhelming majority of staff who are playing no part in this dispute.
