Telefonica Pay Review 2019 – Final Offer

Issue No 600/2019

04th February 2019



Dear Colleague

Telefonica Pay Review 2019 – Final Offer

Further to CWU Briefing 01/2019 dated 18 January 2019, a further meeting has taken place with Telefonica to discuss the 2019 Pay Review which covers all General Population grades.

As a result of those discussions Telefonica has made a final and definitive offer as follows:

  • 75% fully consolidated increase across all General Population grades that flows through to all allowances from 01 April 2019.
  • Telefonica contracts including Technical Specialist, Business Support and Technical & Engineering grades will have an additional pay progression payment from 01 April 2019 as follows:

– Outstanding Performer 1.5%

– High Performer 1.25%

– Good Performer 1%

– Developing Performer 0.25%

– Under Performer 0%


The CWU National Team believes the final offer of 2.75% is a fair, reasonable and acceptable offer and is the best that can be negotiated.

We therefore believe the final offer should be recommended to the membership for acceptance via a consultative ballot and the ballot timetable has been agreed as follows:

  • Monday 11 February 2019 – e-ballot opens
  • Wednesday 20th February 2019 – e-ballot closes
  • Wednesday 20th February 2019 – e-ballot result announcement

The ballot will be conducted by Popularis, an independent scrutineer, and will be an electronic format whereby you will receive an e-ballot via your work place email address.

Consultative on site meetings/sessions are in the process of being arranged and your local CWU branch will provide more detail shortly.

Any queries should be addressed to Sally Bridge


Yours sincerely


Sally Bridge
