BBC offers new pay deal

The BBC has proposed a four per cent pay rise from 1st August 2007, and two per cent in 2008, which broadcasting unions are expected to recomment to members. The proposal was finalised at a meeting between unions BECTU, the NUJ and Amicus, and is offered to all staff in the publicly-funded areas of the BBC.

The headlines of the BBC's offer are:

[b]> A four per cent increase for 2007 and two per cent increase for 2008. These increases will apply to basic pay and allowances

> A minimum increase of £1,000 in year one for staff earning less than £25,000

> Improvements to London weighting, recognising the particular financial challenges staff facing living in the capital

> The BBC will defer for a further 12 months any increases in pension fund contributions by staff.[/b]

Stephen Kelly, Director, BBC People, said: "I believe this two year offer is fair and realistic. It offers staff and the BBC stability and certainty over the next two years in respect of pay at a time of considerable challenge and change for the Corporation.

"It also recognises the need for the BBC to invest in its people whilst investing in services for audiences. We are pleased that the unions are to ballot with a positive recommendation."
