Thought it used to be effective 1st Apr, Big Al's letter is effective 1st May??

Numbers are better than some thought , worse than others.

Probably about right...

Not too bad.
Official inflation was around 9,3%, allthough it was upped in the news lately to 11%. Not surprisingly EK adopted the inital value, but at least it's almost what the official inflation is. As the latter very much excludes the rental influence, it should not bother most of our drivers - they are in comp acco. Hopefully EK will up the accomodation and education allowances by similarly truthful values. THEN i will give HH full credit for his remark during the "reception".
For now the glass is half full.

Probably both, I noticed I had a letter in that top box on the portal (alerts etc) and there it was.

EK pay review

Hi Guys:

Just a question? I'm about to join EK what is the average monthly take-home for a F/O in Dhs. The pay review doesn't look too bad at all.

Could anybody advise

Many thanks!

Oh well that's inflation covered, how about a pay rise now.

WE ARE NO BETTER OFF NOW THAN WE WERE 12 MONTHS AGO

I think you are right Fartmaster particularly as we are likely to get VAT on all goods by years end. However it could be worse. I personally reckoned on 10% on pay plus 3% increment so at least it is 3% better than that. I think we all kid ourselves with stories of 20% plus pay rises. This I am sure will never ever happen while we work at EK. Just remember the Tesco's company motto. "Every little bit counts".
On another subject. Anyone noticed yet another building burning merrily away down SZR by the Dubai Internet City Villa's compound. Lots of big flames on top of building with the Police and media buzzing overhead. This is the third big fire this year. Must be getting complacent me thinks.
Enjoy spending your bonus and rise. Cheers all.

Come again? How does the rise reflects on the package?

9% applied to what?

3% to what?

How does productivity pay ends looking like?

An increase in your package is exacatelly that, to curb inflation. They covered inflation and gave us another 3%. I think the increase is fair. Remember some crew are being layed off all over. This is more that all expected I think.

Average

An average salary increase. Not complaining. I'm with GMDS. If the housing goes up by 10-20% and Schooling too! Then I will be sending in a letter of thanks to HH and the rest of the team.

Not as good as my prediction but a bit less. That's ok! I'm happy that the Instructors get that extra bit too. So all in all a happy camper.

Cynic that I am!

Ok! Ok! I have to say that my guess at the bonus was way off. However my guess at the pay increase was perfect! I would say that I am happy with what we have been given after the complete shafting of the CC (who are more than insulted). Ok so it is not a 12% increase 'cos I already (by contract) was having the 3% but it is welcome especially after a huge bonus.

As for me I'm gonna hang around for a little bit longer

All fair credit to the management on this. A good bonus and a fair payrise, well done, well judged, don't worry yourselves though, it has been just enough of a retainer, not a major overspend that you could have gotten away with paying less on and had the same reaction!
