The UoL’s secret weapon in their London Weighting negotiation team

The University met with unions yesterday to present its initial offer on London Weighting. Here are the details:

  1. A backdated increase from 1st August this year in line with the national pay increase.
  2. The application of any national pay increases each year in future and
  3. Increases in 2015 and 2016 as follows:
  • £100 on 1 April 2015
  • £100 on 1st August 2015
  • A final uplift on 1st August 2016 to £2500 of the amount necessary following the increases set out above and the effects of the national pay awards over the periods from now to August 2016 and
  • Consolidation into basic pay at rate of £2500 from 1st August 2016

It’s clear the University is seeing what it can get away with – further pressure and more staff action will be required in order to get a decent offer. Watch this space for the next stage in the campaign – and of course do email us at uol@iwgb.org.uk.
