POST OFFICE: REVISED PAY OFFER FOR 2022/23 – REJECTED
Further to LTB 248/22 dated 7thJune.
Previously, we rejected a pay offer of 2.5% and a £500 one-off lump sum for 2022/23. Following a meeting on Friday 17th June, a marginally revised offer has been received, which increases the headline to 3% (the lump sum remains the same).
When coupled with a pay freeze for 2021/22 (still no movement in this area), and taking into account the current cost of living crisis, 3% over two years is woefully inadequate, particularly with inflation (RPI for May) now standing at 11.7% . The Postal Executive has therefore rejected this offer and we will be urging Post Office to do much better. We will be writing to our members to advise them of this minor development.
As a consequence of our Post Office members still facing a pay freeze for 2021/22, along with a derisory offer for 2022/23, the Postal Executive has determined further strike dates, which we will notify the employer of in due course. Further developments in this regard will be reported.
