NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!
Council has rejected virtually all of your log of claims, which is a real disappointment. Added to that, their offer includes removing your Annual Leave Loading and End of Band payment, then only offer just 1%.
This is not only a disappointment, it is an insult as well.
In this Current budget, Moira Councilors voted for a 2% increase for themselves, and increased the wages budget to 3.3%. To all the staff covered by the EA – you have supported low increases over the last 2 agreements to help Council. It is you the workers making the sacrifices, and your reward for all that, is the insulting offer in the table below.
Negotiations are still continuing, and we will keep members up to date as they proceed.
