Government of Jersey employees pay rise 2024 (FOI)

Government of Jersey employees pay rise 2024 (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 16 February 2024.
Prepared internally, no external costs.



Please advise what the 2024 pay rise is for civil servants?


Will this be in line with the 8% pay rise that teachers have received since all previous years the pay rise has been the same across states departments? 


If pay negotiations are not complete and could be different to teachers what are the current pay rises that are being negotiated to date? 


What pay rises has the unions put forward and what pay rise % does the States Education Board have in mind? 


What time frames are in place for pay rises to be awarded and how long must it be until the 2024 pay rises are applied? 


Will civil servants be awarded a £1,000 lump sum and pay rises for 2025 and 2026 in line with inflation like teachers? 


As pay negotiations are currently ongoing, the requested information is withheld under Art 39 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. 

Article applied 

Article 39 - Employment

Information is qualified exempt information if its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice pay or conditions negotiations that are being held between a public authority and –

(a) an employee or prospective employee of the authority; or

(b) representatives of the employees of the authority.

Public Interest Test

The Scheduled Public Authority (SPA) is withholding this information as it believes that to release it at this time could prejudice ongoing negotiations between the employer and its recognised trade unions.

Article 39 is a qualified exemption, which means that a public interest test is required to be undertaken by the SPA. It is therefore necessary for the scheduled public authority to examine the circumstances of the case. Following assessment, the SPA has to decide whether, on balance, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information. Although there is a need for transparency, accountability, and good decision making by public authorities this information relates to negotiations between the Government of Jersey and its employees. On balance, it is the view of the SPA that the public interest does not outweigh the potential prejudice of release.​
