Royal Mail HR staff accept 3% pay offer

Members of the Communication Workers’ Union in Royal Mail’s People & Organisational Development Services have overwhelmingly endorsed their 2005 pay agreement.

The HR staff will now receive either a 3% or £550 rise, whichever is the greater, and the lowest paid workers will receive additional increases amounting to as much as 7.7%.

The full result of the ballot was:

Yes – 264 (95%)

No – 13 (5%)

Return – 53%

The pay award is effective from 1 April and members will receive the backdated increases in their August salaries.
