BRT&G AGREEMENT – OUTSTANDING POINTS OF CLARIFICATION ON PAYMENT OF £500 LUMP SUM & ONE OFF PAYMENT OF £1,007
Further to LTB 252/13 circulated on 4th October 2023 and following further national representations, the clarification below has now been received in relation to the outstanding matters relating to qualification for the payment of the lump sums. In particular, it has been confirmed those leaving RMG on or after 5th August (including those dismissed) are eligible for both payments.
The overriding conditions for payments qualification are:
For the £1,007, members need to have been employed on or before 26th March 2023 and in employment on 4th August 2023.
For the lump sum £500 payment members need to have been in an eligible grade in employment on 4th August 2023.
Employees leaving RMG after 4th August and / or on the payment date of 29th September will be eligible for both payments.
Below are typical scenarios where members qualify / do not qualify for payments:
Left before 4th August – do not qualify for payments.
Left on or after 5th Aug (including those dismissed) – qualify for both payments.
Paid family friendly leave (shared parental, maternity, paternity, adopted leave) – qualify for both payments.
Career Break – payment made on your return to work upon request.
Unpaid family friendly leave (shared parental, maternity, paternity, adopted leave) – payment made on return to work upon request.
Precautionary Suspension – qualify for both payments.
From the enquiries received, we consider the above clarification covers the concerns raised.
Any enquiries should be addressed to the DGS(P) Department at email@example.com.
