We are writing to you to provide you with the company’s initial 2023 pay offer and to seek your views. Please complete the survey here by Friday 14 April 2023
We are aware that the company communicated directly to staff on the day of the meeting but in case you haven’t seen it yet the offer is as follows:
• Pay increase of 4% with a minimum uplift of £1,450 (for full-time equivalents). This means that colleagues on a salary of £36,250 or less will get £1,450
Your reps ask you to reject this proposal for the main reason being that this proposed increase goes no way to addressing spiralling living costs and inflation pressures.
We would like to draw your attention to the “no strings” nature of this offer. This is based on direct feedback from TSSA as a number of our members across the company but mainly in the management and clerical grades were unhappy that the offer included productivity elements last year.
To date, we haven’t had any engagement from the company regarding what they refer to as “legacy” issues which have previously formed the basis of unsatisfactory productivity discussions. We have gone back to the company and asked them for an urgent update as to how these issues will be resolved and an associated timeframe.
As a member-led, organising union, your pay claim priorities will shape our reps' negotiating position. Members will decide whether we decide to accept or reject offers put forward by the company. If you are already a TSSA member please take a moment to check your details by logging on to my TSSA
