PCS has submitted the 2019 pay claim to Jonathan Athow, acting national statistician.

We believe the claim to be reasonable, affordable and progressive and takes account of the hard work and commitment of staff over a period of significant change in the UK Statistics Authority; change that is set to continue with fewer staff, a heavier workload and commitment during the foreboding unknown of Brexit. The substance of the claim is:

  • Seeking a one-year agreement
  • A 10% pay increase for all workers with a minimum underpin of £2,400
  • Living wage of £10 an hour and £11.55 in London
  • A review of recyclables with a view to adding to the funded % salary increase
  • A review of the 2018 gender equality impact assessment with a view to eradicate any disparity
  • A commitment to review the cost implications in relation to contractors and consultants with a view to creating “in house” job opportunities
  • Removal of non-consolidated performance-related pay adding that funding to the pay pot
  • Introduction of spot rates for the target zone
  • Review of the enhanced zone efficacy
  • Reduction in the working week to 4 days without detriment to salary
  • Increase annual leave by 5 days for all and moving to 36.5 for all staff by 2020/21
  • Introduce paid leave for staff subjected to domestic violence
  • Introduction of a paid weekly Wellbeing Hour
  • Environmental savings closure of offices for the days between Christmas and New Year
  • An agreement to no compulsory redundancy.
