Hourly-paid: negotiating check-list

This checklist has been devised for branches/LAs negotiating on the assimilation of hourly paid staff under the Framework Agreement.

Issue

 Done

All roles occupied by hourly paid staff to be included in role analysis/JE

 

For academic staff, assimilation to grading structure should be by matching to the national academic role profiles

 

The national role profiles should not be amended such that they no longer read across (eg T&S 2, T&R 2 and Research 2 should all be on the same grade)

 

Current levels of pay/job titles should NOT determine grade

 

Hourly paid lecturing staff should be assumed to be on at least Grade Ac2

 

Effective date of implementation as for other staff - BUT cannot restrict members' rights to pursue Equal Pay claims

 

Progression within grade assured

 

Progression between grades consistent with comparable staff

 

Negotiate for pro-rata contracts

 

Negotiate for permanent contracts

 

Negotiate for harmonisation of terms and conditions

 

If hourly-rates continue, follow JNCHES guidance (post-92) or negotiate on method of calculation, paid holiday and multiplier (pre-92)

 

Communicate to hourly-paid staff (members and non-members)

 

Involve hourly-paid members

 

Ensure support of hourly-paid members before any agreements made

 

Publicise any successes!
