Camden UNISON ensures craftworkers receive backdated pay rise

Camden UNISON has ensured that craftworkers will now receive their 2013 “cost of living” pay rise of 1% backdated to 1 April last year.

When the majority of council workers on NJC pay and conditions were awarded the 1% cost of living pay rise for 2013, craftworkers on their own set of conditions did not receive the award, which was agreed nationally between the unions and employers in July last year.

After repeatedly raising the issue, management have now agreed to implement the award with full backdating, stating they did not receive the notification that agreement had been reached from the national Local Government Employers.

All members are urged to get involved in the national union campaign for a real cost of living pay award in 2014: of £1.20 per hour.
