BT Pay Ballot Result

The consultative ballot of CWU members on the BT Pay offer for all Team Member NewGRID grades closed today (5th August) and the result is as follows:

Accepting the pay offer....24,017 (86.6% of valid vote)

Rejecting the pay offer....3,709 (13.4% of valid vote)

The CWU has confirmed acceptance of the pay offer, which is backdated to 1st January 2010 and will be implemented in August salaries.

BT's final offer for pay increases for all Team Member NewGRID grades is as follows:

  • A 3% fully consolidated and pensionable increase to base pay which will flow through to pay-related allowances, including the pay and pension supplement, backdated to 1 January 2010, for all employees in post at the point of implementation which we expect to be August 2010.
  • A 3% fully consolidated and pensionable increase to base pay which will flow through to pay-related allowances, including the pay and pension supplement, from 1 January 2011.
  • A 3% fully consolidated and pensionable increase to base pay which will flow through to pay-related allowances, including the pay and pension supplement, from 1 January 2012. For this part of the review only should the November 2011 RPI (published in December 2011) be above 3.2% or below 2.5% then both sides agree to meet and to discuss the impact of this and seek to agree an optimum position. Both parties agree to enter into these discussions to seek to ensure that the impact of a volatile RPI is mitigated, both for the business and employees.
  • Following the above measures the next pay review date will be 1 April 2013.

The offer is fully consolidated and pensionable and it provides a 9.3% increase to basic pay over three years.
