Dear Chief Executive,

Local Government service pay agreement 2021-22

Pay

Agreement has been reached on rates of pay applicable from 1 April 2021.

Employers are encouraged to implement this pay award as swiftly as possible.

The new pay rates are attached at Annex 1. The new rates for allowances, uprated by 1.75 per cent, are set out at Annex 2.

The NJC has agreed to recommence the review of Term-Time Only working arrangements, which was paused at the outbreak of the pandemic.

The NJC has also agreed to enter into discussions on homeworking policies, mental health support and maternity etc leave.

Backpay for employees who have left employment since 1 April 2021

If requested by an ex-employee to do so, we recommend that employers should pay any monies due to that employee from 1 April 2021 to the employee’s last day of employment.

When salary arrears are paid to ex-employees who were in the LGPS, the employer must inform its local LGPS fund. Employers will need to amend the CARE and final pay figures (if the ex-employee has pre-April 2014 LGPS membership) accordingly. Further detail is provided in section 15 of the HR guide which is available on the employer resources section of www.lgpsregs.org

Naomi Cooke, Rehana Azam, Mike Short
