People Plus pay petition

In September 2016 People Plus management gave a presentation to all staff informing them they would receive a 2% pay rise in January 2017.

In January 2017, managers have been instructed to tell staff that they will no longer be getting this pay award. Management have not had the courtesy to inform all staff of this officially in writing.

We, the undersigned, are members of prison education staff for People Plus and call on the director Kevin Rogers to honour the 2% pay award promised to staff for January 2017

36 Michelle GriffithsPeoplePlus Prison Education BranchIt would be nice for the company to actually honour the promise made' rather than sweep it under the carpet yet again, by paying us the bare minimum after the profit we make in revenue for the company overall.
35 Janice HazzardHMP Littlehey PeoplePlus should not give promises/statements and then take them away. What does that do to staff moral? It leaves us feeling not good enough. Why should anyone work for a company and not feel valued? I do a very difficult job with very little thanks at least pay me what I deserve.
34 Janette TookeHMP NorwichShame on you!

31 Philip AtkinsonHMP Warren HillAlthough I was not present at the Conference, if the 2% pay rise was publically announced the is should be honoured-no question.

29 Liz FranklinHMP NorwichShafting the staff financially, and then offering to pay a token sum in lieu, has a touch of the (Sir!) Phillip Green about it. Underhand and lacking in class. Shame on PP.
28 Richard TaylorHMP NorwichAnnouncing a 2% increase and then backing out is very bad practice. 2% isn't enough but it would grasp onto the coat tails of the rise in living costs and pull us along. The pay scales in this sector aren't good enough as it is. A companies most valued asset, its staff feel undervalued and are underpaid. What kind of message does this send to people looking at coming into the sector? 2%:JFDI.
27 Jonathan KillowHMP NORWICH
26 Annie ZainHMP Bure, norfolkWe have worked really hard over the last year here at Bure. We have all increased our targets under difficult conditions and I think that we deserve a pay rise. We are underpaid as tutors anyway compared to the national average wage.
25 Robert Stephens HMP BurePlease honour your promise, as I do every day in accordance with my conract
24 Matthew KirkbyPeople Plus HMP WhitemoorTo announce a 2% pay rise and then retract this is demoralising. This should be honoured!
23 Sophie HammertonHMP Norwich
22 cherry greenacreHMP Norwichyou say it, you pay it! 2% is minimal really so I find it quite insulting that we are obviously considered underserving of such small an increase in renumeration.
21 Helen GoochHMP NOrwich educationWe were promised 2% which isnt much anyway given the increasing cost of living - and we should be given what was promised. The 1% now awarded will hardly cover the cost of the increased fuel to get to work
20 Ann ShortenEducation HMP Norwichannouncing a pay rise then changing your mind - ridiculous. It wasnt even as it if was a huge percentage increase anyway. There are little enough opportunities within the company to enhance pay anyway - just taken for granted that we'll carry on regardless of how we are treated
19 Petra Mac GuinnessHMP Whitemoor
18 Ben Carlton-PatersonHMPNorwichIn the five or so years I have worked in prison education, management have always tended to employ the JFDI attitude so it's a pleasure to add my name to a petition that throws this back in their faces, so to speak. On a more general note, in recent times almost every vacacncy in the education department at HMP Norwich has proved a serious challenge to fill - few people with the necessary qualifications, skills and experience seem to consider the pay/conditions here attractive. And yet the reluctance among senior management to honour even minimal pay increases continues. Hardly conducive to a motivated workforce, now is it? But do they care, having negotiated what I suspect are, in most cases, very lucrative contracts for themselves? I doubt it.
17 Stuart Menzies FarrantHMP WhitenoorQualified Lecturers are already underpaid in this sector compared with the same role in FE r or schools. No consideration is given to the additional skills and stress-load involved in working with some of the country's most dangerous people. It's about time private education and training providers offering education in prisons started to show genuine appreciation for the work we do day in, day out
16 Stephen RogersEducationMr Rogers, do the right thing and honour the 2% pay rise previously promised. On a seperate point the leaflet JFDI is disgraceful and demoralising. It just goes to show how we are thought of. Shame on the company.
15 Geraldine JozefiakHMP Norwich - EducationIf it was promised we should get it
14 Graham McGreishHMP WhitmoorTypical of modern companies, take but no give!
13 Amy Lightfoot
12 Sam DrinkwaterHMP Whitemoor We deserve our payrise, we work extremely hard in extremely difficult situations. Pay is already not in line with outside education institutions and I believe with the fact that it is difficult to employ staff in prisons, you should recognise the hardworking dedicated staff that you do have. Its outrageous to make such a public statement and then to retract it. Doesnt instill confidence in the organisation.
11 Richard HarringtonHMP NorwichTo announce a pay rise and then renege on it is simply bad practice.
10 Chris DommettHMP WhitemoorI am just very disappointed that after all the good work you have done since the A4e mess, you have managed to ruin all the goodwill that you had accrued. After all the excitement of the presentation at conference, after the years of meagre performance related pay awards (or not), to be awarded an "accross the board" 2% rise, after the JFDI exhortations, after the jubilant profitability successes, what do you do to encourage and reward us? We were told that you have reneagued on your public and blogged promises. Not even the decency to offer a written explanation, apology. After I had made plans to spend that little bit more on the family, I do not feel motivated by your actions. It will take some serious review of your unthinking management style to win back our confidence. I expect a rapid reversal of this action to pay the award in February, backdated to January and, please, some explanation of why you have done this. I wish you well in your actions to win back our respect and goodwill.
9 Pat TownsinHMP Whitemoor Construction WorkshopIt seems we are being penalised for doing well.
8 Gemma BarnsdaleHMP NorwichThe 2% should be given as it was announced at the conference.
7 Stephen HowardHMP NorwichI find it unacceoptable that this was announced at conference and then it took until mid january for them to tell us it would not be honoured. Is the 1% promised for April going to happen?
6 Deborah StewartHMP Norwichwe have earned this pay rise so keep your promise
5 Matthew BrowneHMP Norwich
4 Steve BoyceBure
3 Abdul MannanHMP WhitemoorI think once it was announced then it should be matter of principle to pay the pay rise. A lot of us already planned out how we would be sending the bit extra we were getting.
