ISS KAD pay offer rejected "obviously falls far short of our members' aspirations"

11th of February 2022

RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2022 - ISS (KAD CONTRACT) (TFL/0001/ISS(DLR))

Following initial pay negotiations with the Company, the Union rejected a 0.9% increase as this obviously falls far short of our members' aspirations. There has not been any improved offer forthcoming and the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to raise the issue of rates of pay and conditions of service on the ISS (DLR) contract with UK management of ISS.

I will keep Branches advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely,

DLR motion on Covid and sick pay
