Cross Country pay update 3.3% rejected

27 July 2017

TSSA along with the other Cross Country trade unions has rejected an offer to increase the salaries for staff covered by collective bargaining by the greater of 3.3% or £800 per annum. The offer also applies to allowances.

The sticking point is the failure of the company to honour an element of the pay deal reached with Virgin in 2002 regarding travel facilities for retired staff.

At the last meeting with the company held on 17 July, the company indicated that the offer was their final one, and undertook to write to the trade unions formally setting out the offer. Thus far, no written offer has been made.

It has been made clear to the company that, as has happened previously, TSSA expects the company to apply the final pay deal not only to those covered by the formal collective bargaining agreements inherited from Virgin West Coast and Central Trains, but also to the managers not covered by a formal collective bargaining agreement – those that have salaries in excess of £29510.

TSSA is now inviting members to feedback their views on the offer to their reps in advance of any further negotiations.
