NIPSA has been pressing for the implementation of the 2018-19 NJC pay increase for support staff in the Further Education sector.  I can advise that the Department for the Economy has approved the pay remit for 2018-19 and Colleges will now work to pay the uplift and arrears in the January 2019 salaries.  The effective date for implementation is 1 April 2018.

Work is commencing between Trade Unions and the FE employers regarding the implementation of the new pay scales for April 2019.  Members will be kept informed via circulars on progress on 2019 pay increase.
