  • Allocate grade – HERA points

  • Go back to 2006 and move onto new scales – same salary or nearest point above. If green circled, move to bottom of new grade

  • Track through to now, including any increments (2006 and 2007) and pay rises. Work out what you have been paid and what you should have been paid – give you back pay with 5.3% interest

    No one loses immediately and some gain significantly.
