The States Employment Board has made a final offer in the 2012 / 2013 / 2014 public sector pay review.
States representatives have met employee representatives a number of times and outlined the challenges of a public sector pay review in the current economic climate.
A 3-year final offer has now been put to employee representatives. Acceptance of the offer will allow the States to focus on making the fundamental changes which are needed to make the organisation fit for the future.
The final pay offer is:
- 1% non-consolidated* in 2012
- 1% consolidated plus 1% non-consolidated in 2013
- 4% of the basic pay bill in 2014, to include modernisation
*A non-consolidated amount represents a one-off payment that is not incorporated into basic pay and is paid as a lump sum.
The 4% offer for 2014 has been made specifically to allow for the reform of the public sector as outlined in the States Strategic Plan. The States Employment Board (SEB) is aware that employees will need to change the way they work and is keen to work cooperatively with its trade union partners to achieve these structural changes.
The SEB is committed to working with public sector colleagues and their representatives to achieve these goals for the benefit of Islanders and to ensure the sustainability of essential services.
