    Once again the pay ranges have not increased. That means that eventually we will all be at the top of the pay band and not entitled to any more pay rises.
    The AXA plan must be for us all to be on the Living Wage only. With bands 9 and 8 already having the same starting salary I wonder how much longer will it be before all grades 9 to 7 are paid the same.
