Pay: HAY, AMHPs and Academies

UNISON West Sussex is in negotiations with WSCC on the following pay awards which are determined locally:

  • Accredited Mental Health Practitioners (AMHPs) Allowance uplift;
  • HAY Pay (managers’ pay uplift).

We will write to members soon with news.


The branch is also in touch with West Sussex academies to ensure that the NJC pay award 2018-20 will be implemented. Academies which use WSCC payroll services (administered by Capita) are on track to implement the award in May’s pay packet – alongside WSCC schools and WSCC staff. We are unclear on where several academies which use other payroll arrangements stand on the matter and are chasing this up as a matter of urgency, with regional and national office support.
