Bbc Pay Agreement

On 12, Sep 2021 | In Uncategorized | By Bill

In July 2020, the Irish Rugby Football Union and Rugby Players Ireland agreed on a reduction in the salaries of players from the four provincial teams, with a 10% pay cut from 1 July to 31 December. As part of the deal, it was agreed that a new BBC minimum wage of £20,000 versus £15,687 will be introduced from 1 August this year. Across the broadcasting sector, royalties are generally managed by the BBC, with which the NUJ has agreements on minimum conditions. After nearly two years of negotiations, BBC employees voted to adopt a three-year salary contract and an agreement on terms. This pioneering agreement includes a three-year salary agreement, a simplification of contractual agreements and a new approach to organisational flexibility and work-life balance. It was expected that a long-term collective agreement would again cover the four Welsh regions, but discussions have stalled. In April, the Professional Rugby Board (PRB) agreed with the Welsh Rugby Players` Association (WRPA) on a 25% pay cut, which would take three months. The initial three-month salary cut deal ended in June, meaning three options could occur for players` salaries. During the vote, the press room at the BBC`s New Broadcasting House headquarters was filled with lobby material against the deal. Activists against the deal anonymously distributed leaflets claiming that the proposed changes would affect the potential future income of young employees who would join the company and offer less security to shiftworkers. The proposed rates for the strata are not part of a formal agreement, but reflect overall the accepted rates.

The salary commitment is demoted to August 2017 and implies a salary increase of 2% for the period 2017-2019. For the period 2019-2020, the amount is set either at 2.5% or as a percentage of the royalty billing, whichever is higher. Michelle Stanistreet, NUJ General Secretary, said: “There is still much to be done in terms of conditions and conditions, particularly with regard to night work and weekend work – which we want to ensure that the working models and conditions of NUJ members at the BBC continue to improve, especially those who regularly work antisocial hours. The WRPA has previously stated that “it is not appropriate to compare players to game administrators without job security beyond rugby retirement”. According to BECTU, this includes an increase in sickness benefits and a simpler salary and classification structure, with increased transparency. . . .
