Royal Mail recognises hard work of junior and middle managers

Royal Mail has announced that Unite members have voted in favour of a pay deal for junior and middle managers, which was recommended by the union.

Following a turnout of 69%, 68.4% of Unite members voted in favour of the offer in its ballot to members.

The agreement consists of a cumulative two-year pay increase of 5.37%. Managers will receive a pay increase of 2.6% this year, backdated to 1 September 2019, and a pay increase of 2.7% from 1 September 2020.

In addition, managers, including part time managers, within this pay bargaining group and who are part of the standard Royal Mail Group Annual Bonus plan will receive a £1,000 bonus advance in December 2019. This payment will be subject to tax and NI deductions and will be deducted from any final bonus payment in June 2020.

Separate discussions are taking place for Unite-represented managers in Parcelforce Worldwide.

Sally Ashford, Chief HR Officer at Royal Mail said: “We are pleased to announce that Unite members have today voted in favour of Royal Mail’s pay offer to junior and middle managers. This offer recognises the continued hard work and dedication of our junior and middle managers. Working together, we are committed to creating a strong platform for the continued success of our business.”

    Nice move! Butter up the management prior to industrial action whilst failing to recognise the hard work of the postman and women by honouring existing agreements. Nevermind, enjoy it while it lasts, I’m sure rico will screw them over when they’re no longer useful to his plan to dismantle royal mail in pursuit of profit

    Am so pleased they’ve got a pay rise all that bullying and harassment doesn’t come cheap!!!

    But not their staff, we’re treated with contempt like we’re an inconvenience. I’ve worked as management in the past and I’ve never known a company to not appreciate its’ workforce as much as Royal Mail do. It’s getting worse by the day, there are many many unhappy employees, which is a shame as it’s a great job.
