TO: ALL MEMBERS IN BOOTS IRELAND
RE: Update on National Pay Talks
31 March 2022
Please be advised that national pay negotiations recommenced on Tuesday 29th March with both the Union and Boots management representatives meeting to discuss our members’ outstanding pay and benefits claim. As you know, our current pay agreement expires at the end of March 2022 and following a national survey of our members in early 2022, we processed a pay and benefits claim for all our members that seeks to end the pay harmonisation model and achieve a pay increase for all our members from April 2022.
Both parties have agreed to meet again in the coming weeks in an effort to reach agreement on a national proposal. In the meantime, it is important to note that only members of the Union will be given a vote on any proposal that may result from these negotiations. To improve our communications across our membership, we would encourage members in all store locations to become active in your Union locally and assist your Union office/Official in our communications plan.
For those colleagues who wish to join the Union, please advise them they can do so by following this link Join Mandate or contacting your Mandate Local Office.
