What's new

Staff - National Pay Negotiations 2015-16

All staff should note that the national pay award for 2015-16 is currently in dispute and the School is therefore unable to implement any uplift to the salary scales on 1 August 2015 at this point in time. Following resolution of this national dispute, any agreed pay award will be back dated to August 2015 for all staff. 


In May 2015, the employers’ representative body made a full and final offer of 1% added to all points on the salary scale, with additional increases to the bottom eight increment points on the national salary scale (which does not impact on LSE as our salary scale starts at a point higher than these points).  This offer was accepted by two of the five recognised trade unions (Unison and GMB), with the others – including UCU and Unite – rejecting the 1% offer.  It is unlikely that there will be any progress in this matter until October 2015, following relevant regional and national meetings amongst the trade unions.

We will keep you informed as we receive information either regarding progress with the pay offer, or industrial action that may arise as a result of this dispute.

Less able, better off kids more likely to become high earners than bright poor kids              

New research, conducted by LSE's Abigail McKnight for the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission, has exposed the reality of a glass floor in British society that protects less-able better-off children from falling down the social ladder as they become adults.     


Single currency has led to increase in generosity, decrease in national pride              

New research from LSE shows that countries who have adopted the Euro single currency in the past decade have experienced a decline in national pride.      


The threats to the global financial system and how policy-makers can respond
