  1. I think this year we need a significant pay rise, with the steep rise in energy bills which are also set to increase further in April 2023. rise in petrol and essentials such as food. The increase in interest rate is also having impact on mortgage payments and rent costs. I think we need a minimum of a 15% increase, just to pay for the increased costs of living.

  2. I am terrified.
    I am terrified about paying my bills and I am aware of people both in and out of AXA who are in a less fortunate position than I, but I cannot help charity this year in the way I’d like to and have in the past.
    I know we need AXA to step up and help us but I’m really struggling to hold out any hope for the country as a whole.
    I already shop at Aldi and plan all my meals, I save what I can each month for Christmas each year, I cannot save for a holiday, my mortgage is due for renewal in June 2023, I’m thankful for the mild October which means I’ve not needed to heat my home, I’m being asked to come into the office to collaborate (despite doing a great job remotely for 2 years) but my travel costs have gone up.
    Please help us get an inflation-beating pay rise.
    We don’t need to grow the pie; we need to better share the pie.

  3. In addition to Pay rise noting Rate of Inflation but also AXA’s profits and ability to pay where no doubt Unite will be looking for AXA to benchmark against other comparable employers in Financial Services; could Unite press for AXA sharing its product offerings more widely with staff including universal access to Private Health?
    Given AXA Healthcare is UK market leading, staff do not have direct and free access and with NHS under pressure there would seem to be a benefit in all staff having some access to private health to avoid NHS waiting lists and get back to work quicker (maybe costed option for partners/dependents?)

  4. Our department has been told we will receive 2.6% pay increase in 2023 with a scheduled 0% increase in 2024. We had a pay increase of just 1.5% last year. The 7% increase advertised by the business seems to have been lost somewhere before it reaches employees..
    Given that 2022 inflation averaged 9% and inflation in 2023 ytd is over 10%.
    Massively let down is an understatement, when the rest of the market seems to be many times higher than this.
