Manual Workers Accept Pay Deal

Manual workers and staff at the Energy from Waste Plant have accepted a pay rise for 2020.

97.5% of Unite union members who took part in a ballot voted to take the offer of RPI + 1.3%.

It amounts to a pay increase of 4% from 1st January this year.

The government has welcomed the decision.

“The States Employment Board is very pleased Unite has announced that Manual Worker and Energy Recovery Facility Worker colleagues have accepted the employer’s offer of a 4% pay increase with such a decisive vote, with effect from 1 January 2020.”   - SEB Vice Chair Constable Richard Buchanan.

Most public sector pay groups have now settled a long-running dispute that led to strikes in 2019. 

Civil servants continue to contest the offer that was imposed on them last September.  JCSA Prospect told Channel 103 last month that there was a 'strong will' for industrial action to continue in 2020.
