Re: Pay Claim
6th September 2022
As you are aware following a general meeting held in April it was decided by you the members that the union should lodge a pay claim on your behalf with the company.
Subsequently the union contacted the company and engaged in negotiations with management with a view to addressing our pay claim.
The company have provided the union full sight of the business accounts, which we believe are a true reflection of how the business is performing. Unfortunately the business has not recovered to pre-pandemic levels of trade and is therefore not in a position to facilitate any pay claim at this time.
The company have however acknowledged the need to do something in assisting all colleagues at this time given the ever-increasing rise in the rate of inflation and have therefore re-introduced a permanent staff discount which you should have received in the past few weeks.
The company has also committed to meet the union in April 2023 to review the business performance for the financial year 2022/2023.
Given the above the union does not believe it is wise to pursue a pay claim at this time and the fact the company have re-implemented a permanent staff discount we will therefore re-submit the claim early next year.
Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact either myself or Edmund.
