A wage increase for Senior Officers
Together has been lobbying for a Senior Officer pay-rise and improvements to conditions for SOs for some time.
As part of the settlement for the "Core”"EB late in 2019 there was a commitment to apply a 2.5% payrise for Senior Officers, back-dated to 1 September 2019. See page 7 of this letter.
Together has been following up with the Public Service Commission to seek urgent implementation of this pay-rise and an update to the Directive.
As of Thursday last week the advice I have received from the PSC Chief Executive is that the final approval for the pay increase is with government decision makers for final sign off.
We have also asked for a meeting about other conditions to be included in the Directive.
We will keep you updated about progress and timing of the payrise and back pay.
