Schools staff - Increments did you get yours.......?

Over the last few years it has been clear that there needs to be greater transparency in terms of pay for support staff in schools.

Quite often staff confuse grades and increments.

For the purposes of this exercise the grade for this member of staff is spinal column point (also known as an increment) 10 to 13. This member of staff was appointed at SCP 10. Each April she moves up an increment until she reaches the top of her grade. In this case it is SCP 13.

I have heard too many cases of staff remaining on their increment and not moving up through their grade. We want to make sure that every one of our members is receiving the correct pay for the work they are doing.

Please check what your grade is. If you don’t know write to your Head for a copy of your contract. If that doesn’t work, please contact the UNISON office on 020 8 359 2088/2090 and ask to speak to Susan Dunning or Tracey Lowe our UNISON officers for schools or email
