Following a consultative ballot of BECTU, NUJ and Unite members, ITV’s pay offer for 2012 has been accepted.

The deal, effective from 1 January, will see a 3 per cent increase on basic salary for all staff paid up to £60K; staff paid above this sum who are covered by a collective agreement will also benefit from the review.

In addition these staff will also receive a 'thank you' bonus of £250 to be paid in the December payroll.

All staff, regardless of salary level, will receive an additional day's paid leave to be taken by 31 December.

BECTU’s supervisory official, David Beevers said:

“This is a tough economic climate and many workers are suffering pay freezes – and in some cases, pay cuts. We’re pleased at the positive and responsive stance that ITV’s management have taken to these negotiations and our members have indicated that this is a satisfactory deal for them.”

ITV's annual bonus scheme is also expected to deliver a payment, expected to be in the region of £900, to eligible staff in March 2012; at the same time the company's Turnaround Plan will declare a bonus for all staff, irrespective of salary level, employed before 1 April 2008 and continuously employed since that date. Whilst the payment is subject to confirmation of the company's overall financial performance ITV expects the payment to be in the region of £1250.
