I've now got a tiddly job which I like, doesn't pay well which doesn't matter and within 4 months of starting I'm getting a 9% increase - but as others mentioned previously is mostly to keep me above minimum wage. I'll take the money, might give some of it back (it's a charity) and the rest I'll probably spend on art supplies cuz now I've got the time.
2023 £1 a day £54.26/365
I suspect that they will do the same as last year - pay a decent bonus and a minimal pay rise.
2 year pay deal.
2021, 2% +£1000
2022, RPI + 0.5%, so that ended up as 12.3%
The company did request that a lower amount, 6% with a £5000 lump sum be taken, but on a ballot that was soundly rejected.
This years round of pay negotiations should be interesting.
Never known a ballot in my working life, any pay rise has always been on a "take it or leave it" basis
2021 No increase
2020 No increase
2019 No increase
2018 No increase
each August there's:
I'm extremely fortunate that I was promoted in August 2022 so my increase was about 11%.
- an annual progression increment of about 1-2% until you reach the top of your grade
- an annually bargained pay award across the sector of, going on the past decade, an average of between 1 and 2% (a greater increase for those on lower grades), though impending strike action may get us a higher offer for this year's round.
Never known the pay deal to be rejected by the membership in 30+ years in the sector. This is the first time there was a proposed change to the agreed deal, which I could understand given the unexpected circumstances.
