9640751-Sack-of-money-with-pound-sterling-sign-illustration-Green-sack-of-money-drawing-Isolated-money-bag-w-Stock-IllustrationJust to keep you posted re this year’s pay award – the offer is a paltry ONE PER CENT.

Some unions have accepted, some have rejected. As a consequence the Dispute Resolution Procedure has been invoked, and it is now looking likely that the first Dispute Resolution meeting will take place in early September with  a second one mid-September.

Employers will not be in a position to implement an award before this process is completed – but the final award will be backdated to August.
