POST OFFICE: REVISED PAY OFFER FOR 2022/23 – MEMBERS’ BULLETIN
Further to LTB 274/22 dated 22ndJune.
Branches are advised we have written to our Post Office members at their home addresses to let them know we have rejected the marginally improved pay offer of 3% (up from 2.5%) and a £500 one-off lump sum for 2022/23, which is still woefully inadequate given the acute cost of living crisis.
We have highlighted in the bulletin (attached for your information) that there has been no movement on the pay freeze position for 2021/22 as part of the revised offer, and therefore members are being insulted with only a 3% pay offer for two years. This is a period where our members worked tirelessly as Key Workers, helping to provide an invaluable service to the public during the pandemic.
Whilst Post Office’s continued stance on the pay freeze for last year is disgraceful, clearly our members’ solidarity and unity throughout the strikes thus far has put pressure on Post Office management to increase the pay offer – albeit marginally. The senior leaders will have to listen to the collective voice of our members and significantly improve the offer. However, we have informed the members that the Postal Executive has endorsed further strike action due to the lack of meaningful progress and dates will be confirmed in due course.
Further developments will be reported.
