Local Government and School workers – Have your say on your Pay

GMB negotiates pay, terms and conditions for local government and school workers.
We’re about to start discussions with employers about your pay for the coming year.

Late last year, we surveyed members and you were clear that pay justice is at the top of your agenda, so that’s what we’ll be demanding.

We’ll be seeking a substantial increase in pay with a minimum of 10% on all pay salary grades (called Spinal Column Points in official language).

It’s the least our members deserve after being so selfless during this pandemic.
