Following our update in December 2022, we can now report that all 22 college HR departments have received the initial outcomes from the evaluation process for feedback.
College HR department feedback is now ongoing and will be considered before the finalised outcomes from the evaluation process are ready for ratification from the NJNC Job Evaluation Working Group, and subsequently the full NJNC.
Employers and support staff trade unions met on Wednesday 22 February 2023 for informal, exploratory discussions on this area of work. This included undertaking Stage Three (development of pay and grading options) in a timeous and efficient way. Both sides reiterated their joint commitment to ensuring college staff can access the funding set aside for National Job Evaluation outcomes as soon as possible.
Further discussions will continue between employers and support staff trade unions over the coming weeks, and we will aim to provide a further update in April 2023.
