It is worth highlighting that this post has been substantially edited to bring it up to date with the current landscape, including the differences in the ways the devolved nations have implemented minimum/living wage and pay freezes/uplifts, resulting in some differences in the pay scales across the nations.

Also that the chancellor announced in November 2017 that the government will be looking to modernise the A4C pay structure.
Thanks Bluecat, just wondering what you mean by modernise?

I think you are asking what the government mean by modernise, as that is who bluecat is quoting - and it usually means restructure in the hope of cutting costs, especially with this terrible lot we have in power now.

Ah, of course. Gosh - fingers crossed the disruption isn't too great - https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/s ... E_PDF1.pdf
The economic modelling used must be pretty complex. Value within services is mentioned as a possible indicator of negotiation strength, but not sure how a group of services performing well would be indicative of a profession's merit as a whole for a pay change. I guess it's a complex algorithm.
