Following a turnout of 69%, 68.4% of Unite members voted in favour of the offer in its ballot to members.
The agreement consists of a cumulative two-year pay increase of 5.37%. Managers will receive a pay increase of 2.6% this year, backdated to 1 September 2019, and a pay increase of 2.7% from 1 September 2020.
In addition, managers, including part time managers, within this pay bargaining group and who are part of the standard Royal Mail Group Annual Bonus plan will receive a £1,000 bonus advance in December 2019. This payment will be subject to tax and NI deductions and will be deducted from any final bonus payment in June 2020.
