In the midst of general unrest among its staff, Royal Mail has reached a pay agreement with its junior and middle managers. Unite balloted its members and 68.4% voted in favour of the pay deal.
Under the agreement, the Royal Mail managers are to get a cumulative pay increase of 5.37% over the next two years. This year they will get a pay increase of 2.5% backdated to 1st September and then from 1st September 2020 will see a pay increase of 2.7%.
Managers that are both part of the union and who are part of the standard Royal Mail Group Annual Bonus Plan are to receive a £1,000 bonus advance in December 2019. It will be deducted from any final bonus payment in June, 2020.
The pay deal does not affect Parcelforce Worldwide where separate talks are taking place with Unite member managers.
Sally Ashford, Chief HR Officer at Royal Mail said: “We are pleased to announce that Unite members have today voted in favour of Royal Mail’s pay offer to junior and middle managers. This offer recognises the continued hard work and dedication of our junior and middle managers. Working together, we are committed to creating a strong platform for the continued success of our business.”
