“To improve real pay levels, the Trade Union Side of the NJC seeks a one-year, across-the-board pay increase of at least the level of retail price inflation, with additional increases for the lower paid. The Trade Union Side’s 2009 -10 pay claim is for one year only and distinct from any other negotiations over the Green Book.  We would like negotiations to take place in an expedient manner and for settlement to be reached by 1 April 2009." Short and sweet and utterly reasonable, at least that’s how many UNISON members will see this year’s pay claim. In reality however, this year’s claim is likely to be a great source of contention between the employers and UNISON, Unite and the GMB.
