2013–14 National Pay Negotiations

Latest news

The national pay negotiations process for 2013–14 concluded with the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) representing the Higher Education employers, and the HE trade unions* failing to reach agreement over a pay settlement.

In late 2013, UCEA advised universities to implement the employers' final offer of a 1% increase in December’s payroll. In line with other universities, the University of Sheffield implemented the increase in December 2013, back-dated to 1 August 2013.

Universities and Colleges Employers’ Association (UCEA) have made full and final offer of a two per cent increase on pay points with effect from 1 August 2014, with the aim of resolving both the 2013–14 dispute and the 2014–15 pay round. Trades unions are consulting with their members, with UCU, Unite and GMB reporting ballot or consultation outcomes in favour of acceptance.
