Following the 2018 national pay negotiations, the annual pay uplift for non-clinical University staff has been approved for implementation at Oxford.
The Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) negotiates pay increases with the trade unions nationally, on behalf of most UK universities, including Oxford. The trade unions remain in dispute over the pay offer but it has been decided that staff should receive the pay increase as soon as possible.
The uplift is a 2% increase on salaries, save for the first ten points of the University’s salary and grading structure which will all increase by £425, providing uplifts of up to 2.55% for staff employed on these points.
The uplift is effective from 1 August 2018 and will be implemented in the October 2018 payroll with backdated pay.
The University is an accredited Living Wage employer and with the uplift in pay the lowest pay point on the structure is now £9/hour, which is greater than the current real Living Wage of £8.75/hour.
