SOULBURYPAY AGREEMENT: 2014-16
Following negotiations in the Soulbury Committee, the Officers’ Side (comprising AEP, the Aspect Group of Prospect and NUT) has accepted the Employers’ Side’s offer in relation to pay which is an agreement covering 1 September 2014 to 31 August 2016 with the pay increase payable from 1 March 2015 with no backdating to 1September 2014.
The pay agreement is as follows:
·An increase of 2.2% on all pay points on the educational improvement professionals' pay spine, young people's/community service managers’ pay Spine and educational psychologists pay spines;
·An increase of 2.2% on all London and Fringe area allowances.
The Officers’ Side has registered its disappointment that the Employers’ Side has not been prepared to agree a national scheme of car user allowances for Soulbury officers. The Officers’ Side does however welcome the opportunity to continue ongoing discussions with the Employers' Side on issues including job evaluation and a review of the SPA scheme.
