The New Joint Negotiating Committee for Higher Education Staff (New JNCHES) is the central committee for multi-employer negotiations and dialogue on pay and pay-related issues. In addition to the central negotiating committee, New JNCHES has a number of standing forums and working groups.

In accordance with the 2007 Agreement, UCEA coordinated a review of New JNCHES with the HE trade unions from September 2012 to January 2013 resulting in minor changes.
