DB Cargo - TS & Ground Staff Grades 2019 Pay Award

12 June 2019

DB Cargo have now made a full and final offer to your negotiating team in respect of your 2019 pay claim. As you know as part of the 2018 pay deal your pay anniversary date changed to 1st July 2019.

The Company have made the following offer:

· A one-year “no strings” deal from 1st July 2019 to 30th June 2020

· 2.6% increase to basic salaries and all allowances (subject to pension capping).

Those former TS5 staff who are now in a Ground Staff role whose salary is protected will NOT receive an increase as per the agreement on protected salaried staff refers.

As part of the “Project Charles” consultation TSSA agreed for salaries to be protected to avoid those former TS5 staff having to take a £1600 pay-cut, which would have brought them into line with the new Mobile Ops roles. Once salaries have “caught-up” then of course pay awards will apply across the board.

Whilst we are disappointed that there was no movement from the Company to reduce the working week or introduce/improve allowances such as Sunday working payments or increase over time payments, we do believe, given the financial backdrop of the Company, this to represent a fair offer at this time.

Your staff reps do not believe balloting you over this offer is an option as we believe it to be the best that can be achieved via negotiation; therefore, this has now been accepted on your behalf.
