The Salary Negotiations Group made a report to the Standing Conference of Organisations of Social Workers as amended and approved by the Working Party on the Future Organisation of Social Workers on 17 September 1968. On 13 March 1969 the Working Party recommended terms of reference for the Salary Negotiations Committee, the chief of which was to formulate and propose to Council the policy of the Association on all matters concerning the salaries and conditions of service of social workers and on the negotiations of their salaries and conditions of service. The Committee first met on 22 July 1970.
This Committee was reconstituted after the 1976 annual general meeting. It set out to establish workload priorities for its two-year period of office. It concluded that its most urgent priority was an examination of the Association's present role as a professional association in relation to trade unionism. Following this it decided that it was of critical importance for the Association to determine whether or not it should develop a trade union arm to its activities.
The committee was disbanded on the reorganisation of the Association in 1979.
