CBRE pay deal worth a minimum of 8% overwhelmingly accepted

Members in CBRE have voted by almost nine-to-one to accept a pay deal which delivers a minimum rise of 8% for engineers, fabric technicians, grounds maintenance staff, helpdesk advisers and multi-skilled hosts working on the outsourced facilities services provider’s BT contract.

An impressive 89% of those participating in a consultative ballot, which closed yesterday (Wednesday), supported the CWU-brokered settlement which links an across-the-board 8% base pay increase with an uplift in the minimum salary on CBRE’s BT account from £22,000 to £24,100 (FTE) – an increase of just over 9.55% – with CWU-represented grade employees receiving whichever is greater for them.

In addition, as a direct outcome of a clause negotiated by the CWU in last year’s pay agreement, a review has taken place of engineering salaries – with the company agreeing to introduce a minimum salary for reach role, with any members currently sitting below this amount being immediately uplifted.
