ATW: Management and HQ Clerical Pay 2013

18 June 2013

Retail Prices Index (RPI) figure for May 2013 announced as 3.1%


2013 Pay

As Management and HQ Clerical members should be aware you voted last year to accept a 2 year pay deal covering 2012-13 as outlined below:

Year 1 = 4% (0.9% higher than May 2012’s actual RPI figure)

Year 2 = RPI or 2% whichever is greater, based on May 2013’s RPI figure

As the RPI figure for May 2013 has been announced at 3.1% we have requested that the company confirm that this rate will be honoured, so unless you hear otherwise this will come into effect from the anniversary date on 1 July 2013.

Over the two years the deal beat inflation as the first year was higher than RPI by 0.9%. Additionally the second year was over a percentage higher than the minimum that could have been received of 2%.

We hope that you agree that this outcome is very positive but we must always be looking forward and ensuring that we are able to go from strength to strength and build for success in the future. This is why we need to ensure that we have as many members as possible to keep achieving positive results for our members.

You will be aware of colleagues that for whatever reason haven’t joined us yet and it may be that they have never even been asked to join a trade union. They won’t be included in the surveys that we carry out or be able to get support from workplace representatives and therefore won’t have a voice in negotiations or consultations that happen which is why it is so important that they join us.

Please do your best to recruit one non-member to the union to build our strength, if you all managed to recruit just one person we would double our strength overnight! They can now join online at
