Please see below results of the Pay Referendum for members in the grades covered by the collective bargaining arrangement:
Do you accept the company’s pay offer:
YES 28% of valid vote
NO 72% of valid vote
We have written to the company informing them of the referendum results.
We have also requested that we arrange a meeting as a matter of urgency to discuss how we can progress the 2023 pay issue.
We hope the company recognises the significant margin of the rejection of the current pay offer and engages with us in a meaningful way to find a pay offer that will be acceptable to members.
If we are unable to get a new and improved offer, we will be looking to ballot members on possible industrial action to ensure we get an acceptable pay rise.
