EDF Nuclear Generation Pay Offer: GMB Recommends Rejection
A number of members have contacted reps about the 2014 CIP payment, who have then raised it with management in Local Employee Committees. So far the Trade Unions have been advised that it will be paid at the lower, 2013, rate of pay despite agreement on backdating the pay award to April 2014.
GMB has so far held workplace briefings on the Company's pension proposal at Bexleyheath, Doxford, Dungeness, Exeter, Hove, Hunterston and Worthing, with further meetings planned for Torness and Hartlepool by April 15th.
Your GMB National Reps and the TU side met with EDF last week to commence pay talks for 2015.
After months of discussion EDF has finally presented its proposals for your final salary pensions schemes. For existing DB Scheme members - both protected and non-protected - they are proposing an "absolute" 1% cap on any future pensionable pay regardless of actual pay rises, progression or promotions.
This week Senior Shop Stewards from the joint unions will be briefed on Project Alpha. GMB is pleased that the company is apparently now coming clean on Project Alpha. You will remember the company originally said it didn't exist.
As promised GMB has now held workplace meetings across the UK to collect your feedback on EDF's 2014 pay offer, and on behalf of your National and Local Reps, I want to thank all the members who attended the meetings and gave us your feedback. At the workplace meetings GMB members were briefed on the content of the Customer negotiations and how the offer compared with colleagues within Customer and other business units in EDF.
