NJC Local Government Services Pay Award

Agreement has been reached by the National Joint Council (NJC) for rates of pay applicable from 1 April 2018 and 1 April 2019 for non-teaching staff on DCC grades A to T. This is a 2% increase, with the lowest paid receiving up to 9.1%, aligned with National Living Wage increases.

Due to the late notification, employees will receive the pay award in May, inclusive of back pay for April.

The two year agreement includes a new pay spine in 2019, which may impact on the locally determined DCC grading structure. The Council has agreed with the Trade Unions that we will jointly consider the impact of this, and discussions will now commence to determine whether or not there will need to be any changes to the DCC grading structure. We will keep you informed of any proposed changes.

The new rates are available at:

"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
