GMB will be meeting shortly to agree the Local Government & Schools Pay Claim for 2020/21 across England, Wales & Northern Ireland. The pay claim will then be submitted to the employers by July 2019 and discussions will start on your pay.
GMB prides itself on ensuring that all members have a say on their pay. So ahead of the pay discussions we are stepping up GMB's Pay Justice Campaign. Last year, GMB's Pay Pinch Campaign was decisive in busting the public sector pay cap across Local Government & Schools and helped negotiate and introduce a new pay spine with a starting rate of £9.00 from April 2019 but we want to go further.
GMB will be campaigning for a pay deal that recognises the immense contribution our members make each day across Local Government & Schools. You will be seeing more from GMB's 'Go Public' Campaign that includes campaigning for public services to be fully funded, pay justice & recognition of the contribution you make every day.
This is your opportunity to have your say on your pay. Please complete the GMB Local Government & Schools Pay Survey.
Remember union strength is in its numbers so the more people who join GMB, the stronger we are to make a real difference in your work.

This survey will be online until Sunday 30th June, 2019.
All survey responses will be kept strictly confidential and once the responses are collated, the GMB pay submission will be agreed by the trade union staff side and a copy will be made available to you.
