Restore pay deal

Restore (formally Iron Mountain) members at DWP file stores offered above inflation increase.

Restore have agreed to an increase in the hourly rate to £10 per hour. This represents a 6.8% increase and is above the market rate.

The new hourly rate will come into effect on 1 April 2022.

Restore are currently in the process of recruiting fixed term appointments who will be joining the company around the start of April with some starting just before this date. To make sure that the new staff are not starting on a higher salary than the existing staff Restore have agreed to work out the difference in the per hour rate and pay this to all staff as a bonus payment in their April salary.

Restore have told PCS that there will be opportunities for existing staff to step up and take on more responsibilities in regards to training the new staff and even changing shift patterns.

They have committed to coming back to PCS with the proposals and how these staff will be rewarded.
