Pay Deal Agreed in Wales20 September 2018
The BDA Trade Union is pleased to announce that members in Wales will now benefit from an agreed pay deal along the lines of that agreed in England. Our officers have been working hard alongside colleagues from sister trade unions on the Welsh Partnership Forum to ensure that staff in Wales receive the best award possible by negotiation.
Staff at the top of their pay bands will receive a rise of 6.5% over the 3-year period of the deal with those below seeing individual increases due to the restructuring of the pay bands.
BDA members were consulted and voted overwhelmingly to accept the offer which includes a range of benefits including a commitment to improving the health and well-being of staff and an improved appraisal system.
Work is on-going to ensure that all staff receive the uplift in their pay before Christmas.
