2021 pay proposals
Diligenta has published details of its annual pay review following negotiations with Accord and Unite.
During the consultations, emphasis was placed on the negative impact the pandemic has had on both revenue and profitability over the last year. But the business is keen to recognise and reward colleagues for all their hard work and continued resilience.
Accord was seeking to secure an increase in members’ pay in real terms and for Diligenta to reward staff who had been promoted and taken on more responsibilities.
The main points of the offer, which was reached after extensive joint discussions, are:
- An annual pay award of 2.5% for all eligible employees – backdated to 1st April 2021
- A performance related bonus to recognise the ‘higher performers’ (individuals who achieved an annual performance rating of either 4 or 5 for the year 2020-21) – to be paid in June 2021
- Lifting of the ‘promotion freeze’ from 1st April 2021
- A review of all colleagues impacted by the promotion freeze with salaries corrected and back payments made as soon as possible
We want to hear from you
Accord is keen to hear members' thoughts on the outcome of the pay negotiations.
Members in Diligenta should send feedback to [email protected] no later than Monday 24th May.
