Information requested

 

Please provide information on latest pay awards by completing this table. I used the example of managers and unionised staff as most organisations will split their pay negotiations in this way. For you this may be different so provide the employee groups as grouped at your organisation with the relevant pay reviews.

Others for example might have pay reviews split by: senior staff receiving a merit only pay review, managers receiving 2% + performance based bonus, team leaders and below receiving 2%

 

Employee Group Number of Employees Date of award Type of award % increase Trade union recognition Long term deal Long term deal linked to inflation
Managers 100 1/04/2018 General + some merit 2.0% No No -
Unionised staff 400 1/07/2018 General increase 1.50% Yes - unite Yes - 3 years, currently in 1st year Yes each January RPI + 0.2%
