RE: Romec: Joint Review of Pay Processing
Please find attached to this LTB a joint statement concerning a review of pay processes carried out by Romec and the CWU.
The review came about as the result of queries concerning pensionability of elements of pay from a number of CWU members. This revealed wider payroll discrepancies leading to a joint review of payroll.
Branches and reps will wish to note the agreed steps being taken to resolve the problem going forward and address any under / over payments.
Romec and CWU have agreed the right amount due for each element of pay, including overtime and any allowances and the conditions attached to each of these elements. All this will be included in a pay compendium which will be published so people can check it if they wish.
Romec and CWU have reconfirmed which elements of pay are counted towards pension for our various pension schemes.
Where current employees are being paid less than they are due on an ongoing basis, their pay will be adjusted to the right level.
Where people are currently being paid more than they are due, their pay will be adjusted to the right level going forward.
We have agreed and implemented new procedures to ensure that any changes to pay in the future are accurately captured and calculated so that people can be confident their pay remains accurate going forward.
It was agreed to review individual earnings back to April 2008. This has identified some under and over payments. It has been agreed that Romec will make a lump sum payment to make good any underpayment, and they will not recover any overpayment. Anyone whose pay will change as a result of this exercise will be written to individually by Romec.
The next phase of the joint review will deal with a resolution to pension issues arising from payroll discrepancies.
Romec is dealing directly with HMRC who have confirmed that there will no requirement for individuals to contact them directly in relation to any changes arising out of this review.
