I do not agree we're "lucky" to have a well paid job. The CWU must take credit for negotiating pay deals over the years while other industries wages have stagnated.
RM appear to have stalled implementation of the SWW in October 2019 which was a pay increase for part-timers as stated in the managers briefing pack;
"An increase in hourly rate of pay in October 2018 and 2019 to reflect the shorter working week of full-time colleagues. This is in addition to the pay award for all eligible colleagues.
We will honour our agreements regarding part-time colleagues:"
While the progression of the SWW, as part of the four pillars agreement is important, It has been acknowledged by the CWU leadership as just one of many issues under discussion via external mediation.
