you have right to move up top of paygrade not matter who scale it is LEA or RM as this right transferred under tupe.
So you have right to move up to top of the paygrade no matter who it is..
Now to move to next paygrade I agree and this is why going to ask for some clarification on stuff like if they move up a grade would you expect staff to sign a new contract removing there tupe rights..
you are still missing the point, if you are tupe'd you move up to the top of the LEA payscale. The only way you can move within an RM payscale is if you have an RM contract, hence you no longer have TUPE protection. in the contract agreement with the LEA, RM will have agreed not to make any TUPE'd employees redundant for the length of the contract - and they have said as much. What they didn't say is that the 'get out' or 'loop hole' in this process is that there is no protection for any employee that gives up their TUPE protected contract for an RM contract - this is how they will go about downgrading NM's.
Technicaly you transferred over to same pay under rm payscale so you would move up to top of rm grade you would be on.
But as said in last message to go up to next grade I agree hence why I said we be asking will rm be asking staff to sign away tupe rights if they wish to move up a grade. As RM do not have to sign away tupe rights so in theroy in the new contract can state that all tupe rights still exist and transfer to current contract. Anyway as said this needs some clarification from RM which we get on Tuesday.
Right quick search on net find these for my local area please note these have just been find on net do not know how valid they are etc.
Also remember each area has different style so you can't compare grade 7 in Leicestershire to grade 7 in Leicester city. Hence why the single national wage is important...
Also here is the green book think this most upto date but not sure will check on Tuesday with union..
To be clear unions use to negotiate locally with each lea then few years back
the lea's and unions let a national body negoitate on behalf. So nationally it would mean people would get say 2% rise each year. But this never solved direct issue of one county being lower than another etc etc. Hence why the national single wage idea has been put forward to bring every lea in line.
But anyway looks like just reading looks like they have agreed on april 2007 wage.
The improved deal offers a 3.4% pay rise to the poorest paid council workers, taking them to £6 an hour for the first time. All other local government employees would see 2.475% added to their pay packets.
