RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2019 – ARRIVA RAIL LONDON
In line with union policy, a pay claim was submitted to the company for a substantial increase in pay and improvements to conditions of service. The Lead Officer met with the company and the following offer has been received:-
• A 2.5% increase to pay and allowances or a £600 minimum payment whichever is the greater, effective 1st April 2019.
• An enhancement to maternity pay from the previous level of 12 weeks full pay to 20 weeks and then to 26 weeks full pay.
After careful consideration, the union’s National Executive Committee has instructed me to inform the company of our acceptance of the offer. This instruction has been carried out and I have requested that the increase and any back monies are paid at the earliest opportunity.
