If you want the support of the rest of the staff you should suck this one up and move on. At the end of the day what justification is there for one group of staff to be subsidized by the company to have a higher standard of living compared to their peers? OTOH if the work is more valuable and can be linked to a higher total remuneration package - then just be open and honest about and say you want to be classed at a higher grade with a higher cash salary. And then watch how that plays out...

Whoever came up with this crap mix of fixed costs + market-driven costs for packages should have realised it would cause no end of problems when the market declines or becomes more competitive. It's analogous to the fuel contracts debacle. People have baked these benefits into their lives and it's now horrendous to unwind. Employment contracts should be respected in the same way CX are respecting the hedging contracts.

Neither situation should have been allowed to happen in the first place. HPE FTW.
