Royal Opera House members seek 4% increase

Staff at the Royal Opera House deserve a 4% increase says BECTU

18 July 2017

Rising inflation and high transport and travel costs in the capital explain BECTU's claim for a 4% increase in basic pay at the Royal Opera House.

Submitted last month the claim for 2017/18 also seeks a continuing commitment from the company to recognise the London Living Wage as the minimum salary paid at the venue. Living wage rates are announced each November. 

The union's claim also highlights the growth in casual and zero hours contracts and seeks a commitment from management to "review the contractual mix across the BECTU recognition areas at the ROH."

Talks on the review are taking place over the summer; BECTU's plan is to discuss the outcome of those talks at a house meeting in September.
