Dear Colleagues

RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2020

In line with union policy, a pay claim for an increase in pay and improvements to terms and conditions has been submitted. Your negotiating team have met with the company and the following offer has been tabled:-

YEAR ONE

A 2% increase applicable from 1st May 2020

YEAR TWO

A 2% or April RPI – whichever is greater (capped at 2.5%) applicable from 1ST May 2021

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

Having considered the views of your negotiating team the NEC is recommending that you vote ‘YES’ to accept the offer as we believe this is the best offer that can be achieved through negotiation in this current economic climate. The on-line referendum will close at 1400 Thursday 21st January 2021
