RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2020 – ISLE OF MAN STEAM PACKET COMPANY
In line with union policy, a pay claim for an increase in pay and improved terms and conditions was submitted to the company. The Regional Organiser has met with them and the following two-year offer has been tabled:-
• A 3% increase to pay all salaries or a £650 minimum payment whichever is the greater, effective from 1st January 2020.
• A 2.75% increase to pay all salaries or a £700 minimum payment whichever is the greater, effective from 1st January 2021.
In addition, the company is keen to investigate the possibility of commencing further Seafaring Apprenticeships with the RMT. Meetings will be held in early 2020.
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.
