The 3% pay offer is an insult to each and everyone of you.
GMB is balloting it members and recommending rejection of this offer. The reason your union is saying this is because what 3% is worth to you in your hourly rate depending where you are in the band
Band 2 an up lift of 28p an hour to a maximum of 30p an hour
Band 3 an up lift of 30p an hour to a maximum of 32p an hour
Band 4 an up lift of 34p an hour to a maximum of 37p an hour
Band 5 an up lift of 38p an hour to a maximum of 47p an hour
Band 6 an up lift of 48p an hour to a maximum of 58p an hour
band 7 an up lift of 60p an hour to a maximum of 68p an hour
This with the increase in inflation predicted at 4% would mean another under inflation pay offer so pleas vote reject.
