Updated NJC Salary Scales 2018-19
Please find attached details of the nationally agreed NJC pay spine points from April 2019, which were agreed in April 2018 as part of a 2 year pay deal. These are nationally agreed pay points, so any school which employs support staff on NJC terms and conditions should adopt these agreed points.
If schools use Trafford payroll then these pay points will be automatically applied for any NJC staff. For those schools which use external payroll providers they will need to ensure that their pay points have been updated accordingly.
There are also ongoing local negotiations between Trafford Council and the Trade Unions regarding proposed changes to the NJC pay banding, as a result of the year 2 proposal that has created a new pay spine. These negotiations are almost concluded and the new pay spine will be communicated to you as soon as possible.
If you have any queries regarding the above please email firstname.lastname@example.org
