In light of the changes to the pay scheme on the “new” (post-2012) contracts, I was requested at the supporting people shop stewards committee to circulate revised advice on these contracts for members still on the “old” (pre-2012) contracts, because some members may want to consider switching.Continue reading →
Average bonus allocation per employee by salary level
Camden UNISON has completed a detailed analysis of the My Performance PRP scheme. Data on its first year was shared with us by management, and it shows that while in some areas it is a significant improvement on the new scheme, with bonuses it still discriminates against those earning under £40k per year, those from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds, part-time workers and those aged over 45.Continue reading →
Camden UNISON has consistently opposed performance related pay (PRP) and the associated five-point appraisal system since it was first proposed by senior management in 2011.

Have you recently started in a new role in Camden? If so and you are at the bottom of your pay grade on the P&M contracts (so level 3 zone 1 and up) then it could be 2030 by the time you get to the top of the grade – and only then if you score a 3 in your appraisal every year.

It came to our attention that some Council employee members on the new contracts have not receive their bonuses or backdated element of their performance related pay increases. We raised this issue with HR on 14 July. They have since informed us that the error should be rectified in pay packets in August, however if individuals have particular circumstances which means they need the payments immediately this can be done so contact HRDirect and speak to your union rep if you don’t get a timely response.
