NPS Sessional Staff Furlough Payment

Are you a UNISON member who worked as external sessional staff (i.e. not current NPS employees) who lost earnings as a result of covid-related changes to working patterns during 2020?

The civil service guidance on this is attached. Please note that this scheme was time limited in 2020 and is no longer in place.

UNISON can follow up any individual cases with the NPS for members who are external sessional workers and who believe that they suffered a loss in income during the first covid lockdown in 2020.

Please contact the branch if you feel your case warrants investigation at
