NICVA, the sector body in Northern Ireland, reports that the local government NJC pay rates, from 1 April 2016 and 1 April 2017, have been agreed. These pay scales are widely used by voluntary groups as a basis for their own rates (across the UK although not necessarily Scotland).
The NICVA article has more details, useful links and also the new scale points.
Update: Sandy Adirondack’s Legal Update also outlines the pay settlement and has an alternative link for the full pay scales.
VoluntaryNews last covered the pay negotiations back in January.
