Lump sum award for public sector manual workforce

The Island's public sector manual workers have reached agreement with employers over their annual pay settlement.

Talks at Whitley Council agreed on a one-off lump sum payment of £400 for the workforce, subject to tax and national insurance.

The sum will be paid pro-rata for part time workers and leavers.

The pay negotiating body representing employers and employees requested the lump sum be included workers' pay packets no later than January next year.
