Today is London Underground pay day, and staff have been shocked to discover that their pay does include the 4.2% rise that should have applied from 1 April. After a long-running dispute last year, the pay deal was agreed in December, so London Underground has had plenty of time to arrange for the year 2 rise to be paid on time.
RMT suggests that staff may wish to submit a grievance, and recommends the following wording ...
Grievance to Employing Manager
I have not received the annual increase in salary, despite this being agreed with all parties in good time for the payment.
I would like this matter to be rectified, failing which I will consider making an application to an Employment Tribunal for unlawful deduction of wages in respect of late payment of salary.
