Staff partnership forum: SAP non-consolidated lump sum agreed

Transparent EEAST crest

After considering a UNISON request, the Staff Partnership Forum (SPF) has agreed to implement the following as a local agreement:

Staff who, on 31 March 2014, are on the 75% Annex U payment on the student ambulance paramedic (SAP) pathway will receive a non-consolidated lump sum, commensurate with that payable to staff on pay band five spine point 23, of £280 payable in monthly instalments, with effect from 1 April 2014 and ending on 31 March 2015. These payments will not count for pensionable pay, nor any of the other allowances and additions to pay in this handbook. They will not, for example, count in the calculation of high cost area supplements, overtime pay or unsocial hours payments. If during the year a member of staff qualifies and moves onto pay band 5, this non-consolidated pay element will cease.

These are the same terms that apply to all the non-consolidated pay elements contained within this year’s pay award. By making this agreement, SPF has ensured that SAPs will receive a pay uplift in line with the spirit of this year’s pay award and like all other groups of staff. These payments will commence in September, with the back-dated payments made no later than October.
