The RMT have today (03 Feb 2010) rejected the draft proposal of the Duty Manager Grade Progression.

We cannot accept that some of our members will have their pay frozen with example of how this would work based on a 3% (hopefully more) cost of living increase below. Year 1: £45,000 frozen + 3% = £1,350 paid in lump sum Year 2: £45,000 frozen + 3% cost of living rise = £1,350 paid in lump sum
