Looking ahead to 2023
This year's deal is long overdue, and was only possible thanks to members who made clear that they would have no choice but to support strike action if the company didn't improve the headline pay offer.
For months, company negotiators refused to increase the 4.21% headline pay which was imposed on staff who don't benefit from Trade Union recognition and the right to collective bargaining on pay and conditions.
As the impacts of the cost of living crisis continue to worsen, members must prepare for the next round of negotiations ahead of the 1 March 2023 pay anniversary date.
In 2022, the power of industrial democracy, and your ability to have a say on your pay and demonstrate your willingness to take action in support of an acceptable deal, has shown the importance of organised widespread union membership.
If you have colleagues who aren't in a union already, forward them this email encourage them to join today to help contribute to a good deal in 2023.
