You will be aware that negotiations with the Further Education Sector Employers during 2020 on Phase 2 of the 2019/20 pay round resulted in agreement being reached in November last year following a FE Branch consultation exercise. This circular brings to a positive conclusion the outstanding element of the 2019/20 pay round.

I am pleased to report that I have received confirmation that Management Side has now been granted the pay remit approval by the sponsoring Department for the Economy to implement the Agreement In full. A copy of the Pay Circular is attached.

Management Side will now share the Pay Circular with Colleges with the aim of implementation of the pay increases in February 2021.

Please circulate this update to members in your Branch, a copy of which is also available from the NIPSA website.

Assistant Secretary
