RMT reps say pay offer falls short

The  overwhelming view of the reps at the meeting was that the pay offer fell short of what was wanted.
It was a below inflation 4 year deal that gave us no increase until year 4.
In year 1 we get about 2% , with strings and dependant on what salary you are on, but the RPI in April 2015, when we should have got our pay rise, was 2.5%,
In  years 2 & 3 RPI or 1% (whichever is greater) and year 4 only 0.25% above RPI.
