Wage increases are 2% for 2017-18, 2% in 2018-19 and 2.5%, or the increase in the licence fee settlement if higher, in 2019-20. The minimum pay at the corporation will increase from 15687 pounds to 20000. A ballot of BBC staff will open on 21 May and close on 8 June. The deal includes improvements to terms and conditions for staff covering London weighting, pay progression, parental leave, sick pay, contracts of employment and new approaches to weekend pay and night working.
