Steelworkers to Receive Above Average Pay Rise

Annual pay talks at TATA Steel UK have now been concluded. The final offer from the company is 3.5% which is slightly above average for UK Manufacturing Industry.
Unite are now in the process of consulting members but the union is recommending acceptance.
The pay will be backdated to April 2011 but is reliant upon agreement being reached regards local quarterly bonus payments. The bonus arrangements should not be significantly affected but will include a new model on calculation. Surely this is an opportunity to rid ourselves of the usual practice of percentage bonus payments which only serve to reward the higher paid. The unions should be demanding that every employee receives the same amount of money from the pot.
Whilst I have no criticism of the pay offer I do have concerns about how our pay claim is formalised.
Little or no involvement of members occurs and they do not get updates of company offers until the final offer is made. Surely this is their pay rise and should be consulted at every opportunity.
Hopefully we will soon have a Workplace Branch and see a greater involvement of members in union issues.
