Looking ahead to 2017 – update

Category: News — 8:24 pm

Longer term pay objectives

The Department has decided to impose the 0.94% 2016 pay offer, which again freezes maxima at EO, HEO and G6. This decision highlights the importance of urgently addressing the 1% pay cap (scheduled to last another four years); the Department’s policy of repeatedly freezing maxima and thereby repeatedly denying a pay increase to staff at and above maxima; and management’s ongoing failure to deliver on its 2014 promise, reiterated in 2015, to put in place a new pay progression system . PCS wishes to begin talks with HR in January with the aim of persuading them to begin rebuilding the real incomes of staff; restoring the real value of maxima and ensuring that all staff are able to progress to the top of their pay range. Progress is likely to be difficult, but the current departmental approach is simply a recipe for unfairness in the pay system and a year on year reduction in real living standards as inflation rises.
