There is an increase of 2.75% on minimum rates from 1 February with other pay rates rising by 2.7% (inflation is currently running at 2.8%). Other elements of the deal include 12 months' care leave, the recognition of earlier periods of non-specialised employment experience and the right to eight hours of paid training.
