Unions accept Association of Colleges pay recommendations

News
30 November 2016 by ATL
Following a consultation exercise which found a majority of members in favour of acceptance, ATL, together with the other five recognised unions, has now accepted the Association of College’s pay recommendation.

The pay recommendation is an increase of 1% or £250, whichever is greater, from 1 August 2016. The recommended pay scales can be found here* and you can download the Gender Pay Toolkit here.

Annual national negotiations on FE pay in England are conducted in the National Joint Forum (NJF) consisting of ATL and other recognised unions and the Association of Colleges. Agreements made in the NJF have the status of recommendations and individual colleges are under no statutory obligation to accept such recommendations.

*Each year, a number of colleges do not accept the recommended pay increase in full and so the national pay scales shown must be regarded with caution; members will need to check the actual scales in operation at individual colleges.
