The Pharmaceutical Journal
From Mr M. A. Cormack, MRPharmS
I have decided to offer my staff a 4 per cent pay increase this year. I am not increasing their hourly rate but, if I use the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee/Government formula, they are going to work an extra hour and a half a week. Overall, at the end of the year, they will be 4 per cent better off. Will they go for it?
This is what I call the "emperor's new clothes" approach do 4 per cent more work at the same rate and you will have 4 per cent more money at the end of the day.
If only all pay disputes were settled this way, what a happy Government we would have.
M. A. Cormack
