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.
