  • Lies, Damned Lies and CoSLA Spin on Pay!

    In a bid to sell their latest pay offer, CoSLA has concocted a soup of selective facts, spin, misdirection and plain lies. In a document they title “Your Pay: The Reality” (an interesting choice of words) they show a selection of pay rates with %age increases. These increase rates are correct, however the way they…

  • School Members Strike Ballot

We are still getting enquiries about why some people getting extra pay this month and others haven’t. Regular followers of our Facebook page will know that we’ve explained why the final award was complicated and would result in some people not getting any extra over the original September offer a number of times.This fact was partly why our branch exec recommended rejection of the final offer.This graph shows the original April pay offer with its stepped increases due to the 65p, 2.5%, 1.5% and 1% second stage (January) increases on top of the 5% basic offer from April (in Yellow) and the September offer (£1.04, £1 or 5.5%) in blue. Employees were to get the better of those 2 (originally just from January but after the strikes, this was extended back to the full year). The best of line is traced in red. You can see that the September offer is best up until SCP 33, Then the 2.5% bit of the April offer takes the Yellow line up higher until SCP 43. At SCP 44 the yellow line drops (where the 2.5% changes to just 1.5%) below the blue line for just that point and SCP 45 (which DCC don’t use). After that, despite another dip at SCP 65 where the 1.5% drops to 1%, the yellow (April Offer) line stays above the Blue September Offer line.The September offer was paid back in November. Only those on SCPs where the Yellow April Offer rises above the Blue line will have received any extra pay this month. That extra money is backdated to April too (following the strike) and should reflect the amount that the yellow line is above the blue line. See MoreSee Less
