Pay Claim 2020
After difficult negotiations, and noting the change in the economic climate caused by Covid-19, trade unions agreed to accept a 3-year pay settlement of 2.3% each year for 2020 to 2022. This was accepted after a membership consultative survey. The increase will be applied from each July.
