Thales Pay Offer

October 5, 2017

Dear ALL,


The below offer is for LR1-7 Job Families 7 & 10 plus site engineers ONLY.  Please note that I still have to come up with a form of words regarding CPI and this is not a measure that the RMT accepts for the inflation rate as we use the RPI measure. However, that is not substantive to the overall agreement and is a tidying up exercise.


I would therefore be grateful if you could feed back to myself or reps asap regards this offer.


This is the maximum that can be achieved through negotiation and Thales have made it clear that this is the most that they can afford.


Therefore, should this offer not meet your aspirations then further rejection would mean the RMT undertaking a ballot of our members and any associated action that our members wished for. So please give honest feedback, because you’re either happy with the offer or you are willing to potentially take strike action to further push your pay claim
