More than 3,000 civil servants in Jersey will have a pay deal imposed on them by the States Employment Board (SEB).
They will implement a reduced pay offer to civil servants after Prospect and Unite unions rejected the most recent pay offer.
The pay increase will now be 1.3% on top of September 2019 rate of inflation.
The SEB said the pay offer for 2020 is less than what was offered in July, which they said in August was the best deal that could be negotiated.
It means the offer of additional paid holidays (in exchange for a half hour increase in the working week) and an additional 0.8% pay increase, based on a savings and efficiencies, cannot be implemented.
Although Connétable Richard Buchanan, Vice-Chair of the States Employment Board, says that these elements remain on the table if the unions want to reconsider their position.
Earlier in the year, the government asked civil servants for their views on the final pay offer, after civil servants held strikes in August.
The unions say they are frustrated by the latest developments and describing the pay offer as 'woefully inadequate' and saying the deal on offer is basically the same as the one they have rejected twice.
Terry Renouf, JCSA/Prospect's chairman, says that the government has not been constructive enough in negotiations.
