Crozier drops one!

POSTMAN Crozier drops one!

Adam Crozier our much loved CEO has lost his crown as the highest payed public sector worker to the head of Network Rail, Ian Coucher.

Little Ad only will only earn 1,242,000 in 2008 (1,256,000 in 2007) as opposed to Mr Croucher who will rake in 1,244,000 big ones,that's according to 'The Public Sector Rich List 2008' published by the TaxPayers' Alliance.

Last year Adam took 1 hour 27 mins to earn 1K,this year he's had to,well do what we do,and that's work harder for less pay.

Ian Griffiths our old MD who was 2nd last year on 970,000 is of course not on this years list after telling the Royal Mail board that " their plan was doomed to failure and would not work " and that it was " Corporate suicide ".

With regard to the public sector leeches,four people earned 1 million a year,twenty-one people earned above 500,000,eighty-eight people earned above 250,000 and there are 194 people earning more than the Prime Minister, whose salary is 189,994.

All those on the rich list had an average pay rise of 10.9 per cent between 2006-7 and 2007-8, three times average earnings growth across the country which is currently around 3.5 per cent.

From Royal Mail's jobs page.....

Basic Pay

'As a guide, new employees aged 18 and over will receive basic pay of around 256 a week for full-time hours rising to 285 - 311 after 1 year. This rate will be on a pro-rata basis for part-time hours. Higher rates are paid in Inner and Outer London and in some parts of the South East.'

ROYALMAILCHAT: "Our aim is to provide the latest postal news and the best forums for discussion of the day to day dealings within Royal Mail. We would also encourage CWU Reps, Union members, Royal Mail employees and of course customers,to use the site as a means to pass on their hard earned knowledge and experience to those that might find it useful."
