The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has published a new employment briefing on the national salary pay scales for clerks and other employees employed under the terms of the model contract.

The briefing includes updated pay scales in line with the 2004 national agreement for the sector.

On 24 August, the National Joint Council for Local Government Services (NJC) announced that an agreement was reached between the National Employers and the NJC Trade Union Side on the new pay scales for 2020-21 to be implemented from 1 April 2020.

NALC welcomes the new agreement and notes that increases should be backdated to April 2020.
