The POA recently conducted a pay ballot for Mitie Care & Custody ICE & OCC staff that are part of the bargaining unit under the POA/Mitie Care & Custody recognition agreement.
Following collective bargaining between the POA and Mitie Care & Custody a proposed one year pay award of 2.2% with no strings attached was put to ballot. The pay award was accepted by 94% of members that responded to the ballot.
The POA have therefore today informed Mitie Care & Custody that the pay award has been accepted and the employer have an ambition to implement the pay rise and the back pay into the June 2021 pay run.
The POAs aim was to gain a pay rise for our members that reflected both the demands of the role and the professionalism demanded by Mitie Care & Custody and the Home Office across ICE and the OCC.
Mitie Care & Custody made it clear to the POA that they hoped for a simple single year deal, we engaged in good spirit and following a series of correspondence and remote meetings the pay award was negotiated up to a level we were comfortable to ballot.
