  • a COVID-19 recognition payment;
  • a national minimum agreement on homeworking policies for all councils and the introduction of a home working allowance;
  • an urgent review of all mileage rates currently applying; a review and update of NJC terms for family leave and pay;
  • a review of term time only contracts and consideration of retainers;
  • reduction in the working week (without loss of pay) to 35 hours (34 in London) plus one additional day of annual leave.
