Civil servants bonus.
« on: June 09, 2017, 03:57:08 PM »
They have given £500 to each civil servant.   Now this is our money and as such the states are not allowed to give bonuses. Where is the money for the other workers?
Which section of workers were made redundant?  The manual workers!
If you save money then you save it!  You do not give some away.
Is this buying votes?
Public money cannot be given in bonuses!!  SJDC get bonuses because they have made them outside of the normal employment for the states. £100,000's being given to them for what? Buying a building for £1 and turning it in to flats. We own those buildings. never mind giving them to upstarts and then a bonus.  Some members of the states must getting money from this.

It's not actually a bonus - although it is being "spun" as such. It wasn't performance related at all - The unions were negotiating for a cost of living pay rise for the most recent two year pay deal and the States basically only awarded them a 1% increase for that two year period. The unions rejected this as it represented a real term cut in wages, negotiations continued but ultimately the States didn't budge, but did add on a £500 non-consolidated pay award for all staff (basically a one off lump sum rather than a pay increase) which they paid for from underspends. This too was also rejected by the Unions as it was still a real term pay cut - but the States imposed the award and walked away from negotiations.

It is show here in this article:

So where are the savings going?
The Minister approved these amounts to be carried forward…

£12 million into reserves and contingencies £5 million is allocated to Health and Social Services to replace the funding that is no longer being transferred from the Health Insurance Fund

£4 million of this provides more flexibility for Social Security in case claimant numbers increase more than expected

£3 million is being transferred into the Long Term Care Fund to pay for ongoing claims

£3.2 million funded a non-consolidated pay award of up to £500 per eligible employee for 2016

£6.9 million is for departments to fund additional spending requirements, as well as funds of £7.4m for previously agreed projects

cpcarrott  that may indeed be the last two years but the two years before that am I correct saying that the states workers received a 4.5% increase ? The accounts will show if you are not sure ?
