Union members 'absolutely disgusted' with revised pay offer

Terry Renouf, from Prospect union representing civil servants in Jersey, says members are "absolutely disgusted" with the revised pay deal from the States.

Jersey's civil servants are to have a contested pay deal imposed on them without union agreement.

Some sectors - including nurses and midwives - have now received a revised offer for 2018 and 2019, after months of negotiations between unions and the States Employment Board.

But the below-inflation pay rise for civil servants remains unchanged.

Senator Tracey Vallois, who chairs the States Employment Board, said she "regrets" the offer being implemented without agreement but that it is "the right thing to do" to ensure that colleagues receive their 2018 pay increases in 2018.
