These pages explain
more about the HERA scheme, the Framework Agreement, how the college
is implementing HERA and how your branch of UNISON can help you.
HERA stands for Higher Education Role Analysis. It is a job evaluation
scheme which has been specifically designed and created to evaluate
all jobs in higher education. This is the scheme which Goldsmiths
has chosen to use to review the pay and grading structure in the
college. At the end of the evaluation members of staff will be transferred
onto a new 51-point salary spine agreed nationally in 2005 as part
of the National Framework Agreement.
National Framework Agreement documents
UNISON and the UCU have been in negotiations with Goldsmiths since
2005 on how the framework agreement is to be implemented in this
College. Agreement was reached in March 2008, subject to acceptance
by a ballot of the membership.
