GMB Pay Survey 2024

For members in National Grid Electricity Transmission, ESO, NGV, and Corporate only

Does not include National Gas Transmission and National Grid Electricity Distribution (NGED) members.

Dear members

Thanks to all GMB members for taking time to complete the pay survey. It is important that GMB members have a say on pay. We had a good response, and we will use the results to help draw up the pay claim with GMB reps and the other trade unions.

The top two issues that came up in the survey were the percentage pay rise and pay progression. The cost-of-living crisis is still hitting people hard and real price rises and increases in interest rates and rents are far higher than the headline inflation figures. From the survey it is clear that GMB members are looking for an increase that reflects this and maintains a good standard of living.

Pay talks across the energy sector are starting this month and the pay negotiations with National Grid are scheduled for the middle of January. We will keep you informed of developments as discussions progress.

If you are not yet a member of GMB Union, and you want a say on your pay, you can join online at or complete the form overleaf and return it to your GMB workplace rep.

In Solidarity

Gary Carter

National Officer

National Grid Staff Forum Joint Statement

National Grid Staff Forum (NGSF) Joint Statement – Future System Operator (FSO)

12 September 2023

The NGSF is comprised of representatives from Senior Management, Employee Relations along with senior union representatives including our four Full Time Officers from Prospect, Unite, UNISON and GMB.

The NGSF welcomes the Electricity System Operator (ESO) recent update to those colleagues in enabling functions welcoming them to the Future System Operator. This is a positive step as it gives colleagues (who are clearly aligned to ESO today) certainty, while also giving the opportunity for the leadership team to share with them the vision of the Future System Operator.

The NGSF and their respective local forums (Joint Services & ESO Forum) continue to have open dialogue. We jointly recognise the importance of constructive relationships as we work towards a smooth transition with appropriate assurances through the process of separating the ESO from National Grid.

The NGSF and the local forums remain committed to further engagement and consultation, where appropriate as soon as more information becomes available.

We appreciate that colleagues may have questions and we encourage you to speak to your line manager, your People Partner or contact your trade union representative.

We would like to thank you for your continued commitment

Kind regards

Nikki Jamieson – FSO Separation Director

Kayte O’Neil – Director of Transformation, ESO

Claire Crofts – Joint Secretary (Company side)

Steve Thomas – Joint Secretary (Trade Union side) Prospect, National Secretary
