London weighting in higher education

The amount of London weighting paid to staff working in higher education varies between institutions.

London Weighting is largely negotiated locally, with UCU branches in pre-92 institutions submitting claims on behalf of their members.

In many post-92 institutions it is now rolled up into local pay scales or, where it is retained separately, increases annually at the same rate as the nationally negotiated pay settlement.
