Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2019 – UKRI

Negotiations have been on-going for some time and as you are probably aware there have been some considerable changes leading to a massive re-organisation within the company which was only settled last November. Then there were further delays as Parliament was prorogued for the general election in December, thus leading to a late response to our pay claim.

The company has offered an increase of 2% across all grades but there is no provision for a bonus and it will be backdated to 1st July 2019.

The increase will also be payable to those that have left the company post 1st July 2019 on a pro rata basis, based on when the individual left the company.

After long and careful consideration, the union’s National Executive Committee (NEC) has instructed me to hold an electronic referendum so you and your colleagues so that you can have your say on this offer. In order to get a quick turnaround and bearing in mind the current coronavirus situation, we are running this referendum electronically on this occasion.

Electronic Referendum Instructions
