United Kingdom -Median pay rise in first quarter of 3% -May 29, 2012

The Labour Research department’s database of collective agreements shows a midpoint (median) pay rise of 3% in the three months to April 2012. The increases average 3.0% across all sectors, apart from the public sector where the average is only 1.8% as a result of the public sector pay freeze. An important contributory factor to the rise is long-term, inflation-linked deals in the private sector based on the Retail Prices Index (RPI) inflation figures.
