NUJ consults ITV members on pay deal
15 January 2014
A consultative ballot has gone out to ITV members at the National Union of Journalists, BECTU and Unite asking whether to accept a pay offer of 2.75 per cent or £1,000, whichever is the greatest for staff earning less than £60,000.
The joint-unions claim was for RPI plus 3 per cent. The negotiating committee is not making a recommendation, however a letter from Sue Harris, NUJ broadcasting organiser, said:
"While ITV's final offer falls short of our original claim (RPI stood at 2.6 per cent in November), we believe that it is significant enough to consult with members."
The ITV offer would mean:
- 5 per cent increase for those earning £20,000
- 4 per cent increase for those earning £25,000
- 3.3 per cent increase for those earning £30,000
- 2.85 per cent increase for those earning £35,000
- 2.75 per cent increase for those earning £36,363 and above
The consultative ballot closes at noon, Monday 3 February.
