2 1. Introduction This information supplements the for the Implementation of the JNCHES Framework for the Modernisation of Pay Structures at the University of Manchester The terms and conditions set out below are effective from 1 September 2010 and replace and supersede all other existing agreements, arrangements and customs and practice. They have been negotiated with the University s recognised trade unions, namely The University and College Union (UCU), UNISON and UNITE. They provide harmonised terms across all staff groups, which is important in providing equality to support the pay structure. They do not incorporate or constitute the full scope of the terms and conditions of employment covered by the contract of employment. 2. Pay and Grading Structure (a) The University pay and grading structure for grades 1-8 consists of 8 grades over a 54 point pay scale. This incorporates the national 51 point pay spine and adheres to the National Framework and the Memorandum of Understanding agreed with AUT (now UCU University Colleges Union). (b) There are separate pay arrangements for Professors and Senior Managers at grade 9. (c) To ensure equal pay for work of equal value, all roles are assigned to grades through job evaluation: - using the Higher Education Role Analysis scheme (HERA) for Support and Academic-related roles, - using the National Library of Academic Role Profiles (NLARP) for Research and Academic roles. (d) Salary increases may be awarded by the University following national salary reviews by JNCHES (the Joint Negotiating Committee for Higher Education Staff). Salary awards are normally effective from 1 st August. Grade Support Academicrelated Research and Teachingfocussed Research Academic Page 2 of 17 Effective 1 st September 2010.
3 2.1. Pay on Appointment (a) Appointments shall normally be made to the bottom point of the scale. An increment shall not be paid until a minimum of six months service in post at their current grade has been accrued, (i.e. employees must have been in post by 1 February, or the first working day in February). As such anyone with less than six months service in post as at 1 August shall not receive an increment until the following August. Thereafter pay shall increase by annual increments on 1 August of each year until the maximum point on scale is reached. (b) The minimum entry point for Lecturer A (Teaching and Research) shall be grade 6 point 33, and there will be no impediment to progression of such staff to Lecturer B (grade 7) provided there is continued satisfactory performance Progression within Grade (a) Pay shall increase by annual increments on 1 August of each year (subject exceptionally to established procedures for handling performance problems) until the maximum point on scale is reached. Once the maximum incremental point within grade is reached staff will remain on that point. Staff do not automatically progress to the contribution points (shaded incremental points) at the top of each grade. (b) Incremental increases may be withheld in the event that a member of staff fails to demonstrate satisfactory conduct or service. This will only happen when the member of staff concerned is within a process designed to improve conduct or performance and has been warned that the withholding of an increment is a likely consequence of failure to improve. (c) Individuals with a legacy incremental date of either 1 January or 1 October shall retain this date until such time as they change job, are re-graded or reach the top of the scale. (d) The Reader scale shall extend through the contribution points of grade 8 up to and including point 54. (e) Accelerated progression within grade shall be in accordance with the Recognising and Rewarding Exceptional Performance Policy Contribution Points (a) There are a small number of incremental points at the top of each grade (shaded on the pay scale) which are awarded for exceptional performance. Usually this performance has been sustained for a period of at least 6 months and will be expected to continue for the foreseeable future, however, a one off payment is also available for exceptional work. Details and criteria are contained in the Recognising and Rewarding Exceptional Performance Policy. Page 3 of 17 Effective 1 st September 2010.
4 2.4. Progression Between Grades (a) The University will help to identify and encourage individual development through the annual Performance and Development Review process. Opportunities for progression are also available to all staff through weekly advertised vacancies. (b) For academic and research staff the progression between grades shall be in accordance with the Promotion of Academics Policy. (c) For support and academic-related staff progression between grades shall be in accordance with the Re-grading Policy and Procedures Market Supplements (a) From time to time external labour market conditions can produce a situation in which roles with scarce skills and expertise can command higher salaries than the maximum provided under the pay and grading scheme. In these exceptional circumstances, the University may, at its discretion, make additional payments to recruit and retain staff in accordance with the provisions of the Market Pay Policy Pay Day (a) Salaries are paid in arrears by credit transfer to staff bank or building society accounts at the following times: Payment Method Monthly end of month Pay date penultimate working day of each month Monthly mid month 15 th of the month or the working day immediately before then if this falls on a bank holiday or weekend.

(c) (d) All time off in lieu for eligible staff will be at plain time. All overtime must be agreed in advance with management.

(d) This does not apply where: there is a requirement to act as a deputy in the job description, the additional duties are arranged as part of a planned development opportunity, the duties are consistent with the current grade of the member of staff providing cover eg. a lecturer taking over the teaching responsibilities of a senior lecturer Exceptional Duty Allowance (a) Where, in exceptional circumstances, support staff are required to carry out a one-off task which is beyond the reasonable requirements of the job description, they may be given an exceptional duty payment.
