BT Pay Consultative Ballot Result

209.2022 |15th December 2022

Dear Member,

BT Pay Consultative Ballot Result

We are writing to let you know the outcome of the ballot on the proposed pay agreement; the result is as follows:

·       Accepting the pay offer:                      81% of valid votes

·       Rejecting the pay offer:                       19% of valid votes

Of the ballot papers dispatched, 73% were returned.

The CWU has now confirmed acceptance of the proposed pay agreement to BT and they are now taking steps to implement this in January pay.  Below is a reminder of the agreement reached:

Ø  A £1500 flat-rate (pro-rata for part-timers) fully consolidated and pensionable pay increase, payable monthly from 1st January 2023.  This is on top of the already £1500 consolidated and pensionable pay increase you received on 1st April 2022. 

Ø  As it is consolidated, it increases your hourly rate of pay which flows through to pay related payments such as overtime and bank holiday premiums.

Ø  The next pay review date for 2023 only, will be 1st September 2023 to allow for a period of negotiations on long-standing discussions to resolve all current unagreed pay and grading issues.

Ø  From 2024 onwards, the annual pay review will revert to 1st April. 

Thanks to all who participated in the ballot.

Yours sincerely

Andy Kerr  – Deputy General Secretary                                                                                 

Dave Ward – General Secretary
