Manchester: Update to Employees on 2012 Pay Review

To: Employees in the UNITE Manchester Bargaining Unit
Update to employees on 2012 pay review
Thanks to everyone who completed UNITEís recent pay survey.  Your reps found the results very useful in preparing for negotiations, which began last week.  The key survey results were:
What would you consider to be a reasonable percentage Pay Pot for 2012?

The most popular answers were:

  • 5% (29% of responses)
  • 4% (14% of responses)
  • 10% (12% of responses)

Two thirds of respondents thought a reasonable pay pot would be 5% or more.

What Percentage of the Pay Pot should be a cost of living element (0-100%)?

The most popular answers were:

  • 50% (25% of responses)
  • 75% (12% of responses).
  • 100% (12% of responses)

The median response was that 75% of the available pay pot should be used for a Cost Of Living rise.

Should PAC rating be a factor in determining your pay rise?

74% of employees thought PAC rating should be a factor in determining their pay rise.

What should be the minimum annual salary for a full time Fujitsu employee (£s)?

The most popular answers were:

  • £15000 (22% of responses)
  • £18000 (14% of responses)
  • £16000 (10% of responses).

Should the UK&I Service Desk pay scales be increased?

84% of those who responded said yes.

Should the Company publish its pay and benefits scales?

98% said yes.

Negotiations with the company are ongoing and we expect a joint update on progress to be issued soon.
As previously highlighted, the company agreed that all appraisals for employees in the Manchester bargaining unit should have been completed and PACs uploaded by the end of April, to feed in to the pay review process.  We urge all managers to complete this process as quickly as possible, and all employees to check that their appraisal is complete on the online system and to raise it with their manager and escalate any delays if necessary.
UNITEís ability to secure a good deal for employees depends on the size and participation of its membership.  If you arenít yet a UNITE member and want to help secure fair pay and benefits, please join today.
