Pay Rise New Starters

05 May 2017, 20:03

The question of a pay increase for the new starters was raised at WTLL today as it was believed a 50p p/h rise was due after six months. I believed it was one year.

I checked my wage slips & verified a year had elapsed from my starting week 45/2013 until week 43/2014 the Pay Rate was 335.77 THEN CHANGED Week 44/2014 - the Pay Rate increased to 373.08.

Can anyone clarify if six months or a year is the standard time period for pay rate increases

Thanks for reply AceMark. There does appear to be a consensus as I have had a similar response from the Union forum.I have written to HR for clarification.

I have received a response from HR which states "You are under the CWU network grade. On this pay grade you only get a pay increase after one year in service. The six months pay increase is NOT applicable to 'Network' OPG grades .It only applies to CWU grades within Mail Operations and Modernisation."
