Manchester Pay Update

You should already have seen last week’s joint announcement of the outcome of the talks with the company and ACAS on 30th April in relation to the pay freeze and the Manchester pay deal.
Reps should receive a response this week, following the company’s review of the situation in the light of the strong arguments put forward in favour of the company honouring the deal they had made so recently.
A further meeting with the company and ACAS is scheduled for Monday 18th May.
UNITE reps in Manchester continue to work with colleagues in UNITE and PCS across the UK to maximise the pressure on the company in relation to the pay review. Whether or not we are successful in overturning the pay freeze in Manchester or elsewhere, it is important that there is as strong a response as possible, to discourage the company from coming back for more by attacking other aspects of our employment. Please do everything you can to support the campaign.
In parallel with tackling the pay freeze, your reps have also been working with the company to help them produce a statement of their position on the various points in our pay claim that weren’t addressed in the pay deal. The company has now finalised this statement, which we have published on CafeVIK. This will be helpful in progressing issues in future years.
