Civil servants pay deal

24 March 2010

The Civil Service unions have voted overwhelmingly to accept the States Employment Board's (SEB) 2 year pay offer.

The offer, which was made to the unions in November last year, is for a 2% increase in basic pay from 1 January 2010, followed by a further 2% increase from 1 January 2011.

This 2-year offer also included an agreement that the trade unions and staff associations agreed to move the pay year to Jan-Dec (from the current June-May) and to them agreeing to cooperate with a review of pay and conditions of service across the public sector.

Senator Terry Le Sueur, who chairs SEB, said “I am delighted that the Civil Service Unions has accepted this 2 year deal. I understand that it was accepted by approximately 88% of those people who voted which demonstrate the level of understanding and support for our pay policy in these difficult economic times.

"We await the outcome from other pay groups but I am hopeful that they will follow the lead of the Civil Servants and support us in what is still a very difficult economic environment. Today's (24 March 2010) decision will also assist the Comprehensive Spending Review to focus on identifying efficiency savings across the States in order to contribute to a return to balanced budgets by 2013."
