Public sector pay policy 2024 to 2025

Public sector pay policy for the year 2024 to 2025 sets out the framework for pay increases and applies to public bodies with settlement dates in the year between 1 April 2024 and 31 March 2025.

Low Pay measures

The Pay Policy sets the overarching framework and public bodies have the flexibility to draw up their own pay proposals which consider workforce planning and local pay issues such as recruitment and retention, equality, and the impact of the low pay measures on other staff. The pay negotiation principles within the Pay Policy actively encourage employers to consider their own staffing profile, local evidence, views of staff and unions, and equality issues in framing their pay proposals.

Employers are encouraged to consider a progressive pay approach, which may include setting a cash underpin, a higher percentage uplift, or a non-consolidated cash payment.
