EVH Pay Deal

19 February 2015

Grading and Salaries
The EVH Full Employer Members' ballot is now closed. The response rate was 97% and 99% of respondents voted in favour of the proposal. This result is very encouraging indeed and it demonstrates that collective bargaining is alive and well.

Unite the Union has also enjoyed a high response rate and 90% were in favour.

The Joint Negotiation Committee has met tonight and has thus approved the proposal.

I am therefore pleased to announce that the pay award this April will be 1.5% and in April 2016 - it will be equivalent to November 2015 CPI plus 0.5% (with a floor of 1% and ceiling of 2%).

We will issue updated salary scales shortly.

Thank you to everyone who has taken time to participate in the consultation last year and also submitted a ballot paper.

Also thank you to the Joint Negotiating Committee members for their hard work, which resulted in successfully agreeing this two-year deal.
