Unite members will be relieved to hear that the 2022 pay deal will now be implemented – finally!
Today COSLA confirmed that the sticking points of the 1 day’s annual leave and payment of SSSC registration fees will be in perpetuity as offered and accepted by a members’ ballot.
Despite pressure being applied to accept a partial deal, Unite would like to thank you all for your continued support and determination to get the full deal.
Together we will always be strong!
The new rates, and your backpay, will be paid on 22 December 2022.
One day annual leave will be added to your entitlement soon. As the pay deal takes effect from April, there was around a half day accrued in the last leave year. We are in discussions about how this will be added to your entitlement.
For details of the pay deal, and to see a rough calculation of what it will mean for you, see our post from September.
