Amey: 2014 Final Pay Acceptance

22 April 2014

Members vote overwhelmingly to accept this yearÂ’s above inflation pay increase. Help us build for future successes by reading on.


Pay referendum

The 2014 Pay offer has now been overwhelmingly accepted, by those TSSA members who chose to participate in our pay referendum. The results of the vote, which were on whether or not to accept the pay offer (shown below), were as follows:

Valid votes received = 138

Spoilt (Non-member or duplicate) votes received = 3

Votes to accept = 134

Votes to reject = 4

2014 pay offer:

“A 1 year deal only.

3.1% pay increase to apply to all employees in the collective bargaining group including apprentices and trainees effective 1/3/14.

All allowances as defined in the 2008 agreement will be increased by 3.1%

All increases will apply regardless of whether the employee has had a recent salary change e.g. for a promotion

All increases will apply from 1 March 2014 (including to those who have transferred out 1 April 2014)

As you are aware Amey is committed to moving ahead with the reviews currently taking place into rostering, flexible working, on call and harmonisation of T&C’s. I firmly believe that a target completion of September 2014 should be agreed to focus all parties attention on agreeing and resolving the many issues that exist within these areas. Additionally a simple note will be added to salary review lettersboth apologising for the long time these discussions are taking and confirming commitment to moving things along.

As mentioned when we met it is Amey’s intention to review the current Apprenticeship programme. For clarity this would be for new entrants only. Further work is currently being done on this and again for clarity any proposed changes would be fully discussed and agreed with you”

For information the specific Allowances increased in line with the above headline figure as per the 2008 Pay Agreement are London Allowance, Lodging Allowance, Test Section Mobility Clause, On Call, SCMI.

We have now written to Amey to clarify TSSA’s acceptance of the above offer and have asked for clarity on when the backdated amounts will be paid to members.

Moving in the right direction?

The fact we have managed to achieve an above inflation pay increase for our members is a major achievement, particularly in the current economic climate. This couldn’t have been done without members fighting and winning an extension of collective bargaining, standing to be workplace representatives and telling us of the issues that you face in the workplace and assisting us in finding the solutions.

For us to build on this continued success we need to continue to grow our membership and the number of members willing to participate towards future success.

This can be done in a variety of ways, if you are interested in being a workplace contact or even a workplace representative then please contact Alan Valentine or contact our members helpdesk on 0800 328 2673.

If every TSSA member were able to encourage just one colleague, who is a non-member, to join us we could double our strength overnight.

Together we Bargain, Divided we beg!
