SSE - 2024 PAY CLAIM UPDATE - 6 February 2024
SSE Pay Claim Update
GMB and joint trade unions met with the company in early January to discuss pay for the forthcoming twelve months. The joint union claim is for a substantial pay increase on basic rates and allowances for 2023/24, and improvements in other terms and conditions including storm and standby payments, and pension provisions.
The company came back with a three-year offer based on the CPI (consumer prices index) inflation rate for each April. This was rejected by the joint unions. Whilst the headline inflation rate may have fallen, this hasn’t translated into falls in the cost of living for GMB member, who are still feeling the impact of higher mortgages, rising rents, food, and energy prices.
There is still a large gap between what our members want and believe SSE can afford and the offers that the company has put on the table.
Further pay negotiations are scheduled for beginning of March and we hope that progress can be made during the scheduled two days.
We will keep you informed of developments.
