Southern 2013 Pay Offer

7 May 2013

TSSA have now had two meetings with Southern to discuss the 2013 pay award.


At the first meeting we put forward our claim for the following:

· A substantial Increase to salaries.

· An increase in Regional Allowances.

· An improvement in family friendly policies and provisions.

· An improvement in Annual Leave.

Southern said they would take our submission away to consider. However, they indicated that the unfavourable current economic climate in the United Kingdom was affecting their business and they believed they could not match the RPI figure for February 2013 that stood at 3.2%.

At our second meeting, Southern stated that the growth of business had not matched that predicted in their franchise bid made at the start of the current franchise and that they would be going into Revenue Support in September 2013. TSSA argued strongly that this situation was not of our members’ making.

The result was that Southern made the following offer:

· 2.8% Increase in salaries and allowances

TSSA rejected this offer and we plan to meet Southern again in early June for further discussions. We will, of course keep you advised of developments.
