2016 Pay Ballot result…

Based on a 67% return of ballot papers issued, the result of the 2016 pay ballot is as follows:

For: 23%
Against: 77%
Spoilt: 0%

In view of the overwhelming rejection of the company pay offer we have formally asked AXA to reopen the pay negotiations to try and achieve an acceptable negotiated settlement.

Thank you to everyone who voted and the local workplace reps for the hard work they put in running the ballot.

AXA EWC in Paris

The AXA European Works Council, with union representatives from AXA operations in Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain and the UK is being held in Bristol.

The UK delegates are asking Group President Henri de Castries the following questions:

1.As big companies such as Accenture, JP Morgan and PWC move away from performance reviews, are there any plans for AXA to change the way we do Performance Management?

2. As the UK Government announces that companies should be publishing salaries and bonus differences between females and males, how confident is AXA that we are paying employees fairly with regard to gender. Will AXA have to manipulate bonus amounts so that they reflect a fair spread between females and males?

3. Do you know how many people are working flexibly across Europe? Do you look for trends by country at how many flexible working contracts are there, are some countries doing better than others?

4. Travel to work forms part of working hours- time spent travelling to and from first and last appointments by workers without a fixed office should be regarded as working time the European court of justice has ruled- potentially AXA could be in breach of working time regulation, what plans has the company got at a European level to combat this?

5. When will AXA be brought into 2015, and issue smart phones and tablets as standard to those job roles and grades warranting the use, instead of old Nokia’s and blackberries – again the higher levels have them?

6. What plans have AXA got to improving systems to ensure we do not keep losing business days as has happened throughout Europe in the last few weeks?

Impact of 2015 Budget

Since the Budget announcement last week, an increasing number of union members have contacted us raising the issue of how it impacts them.

Many of those who have contacted us are relatively low paid and have said they will be losing over £1000 a year following the changes being implemented in the Budget.

Whilst the next round of pay talks with AXA are a little way off, we need to ensure we have a clear picture of any potential adverse impact the Budget may have on our members in AXA, so we can look to address this if necessary.

Consequently we are asking all our members to complete the BBC Budget calculator here.

And enter the result in our confidential online survey here.

We have asked you to provide some anonymous demographic data so we can ascertain if any specific populations are impacted more than others.

We are not sure how long the BBC will keep its Budget calculator online, so would encourage you and your colleagues to use it and complete the survey asap.
