Minimum increase of 1.5% for staff in grades 1-8

The 2021 National Pay Award (NPA) has been confirmed and will be paid in August payroll. This year's NPA will provide UoY staff on grades 1 - 8 with a minimum salary uplift of 1.5%. Colleagues on spine points 3 - 21 will benefit from an uplift of between 1.54% to 3.6%.

Updated pay rates with effect from 1 August 2021

Real Living Wage

Earlier this year, the University announced that it was seeking accreditation to become a real Living Wage employer. All staff affected received a letter which included reference to the possible NPA pay increase, however it was unconfirmed at that stage. As the NPA rates are now confirmed and remain as previously anticipated, we are pleased to confirm that the rates communicated in these letters will be effective from 1 August.
