BT managers who take on new jobs or are promoted over the next few months will have their pay frozen until July.

According to documents seen by El Reg, BT is introducing the pay freeze for BT Retail managers in order to comply with corporate governance rules.

As a result, any BT Retail manager awarded a pay rise between 2 April and 30 June won't receive a penny until July. What's worse, "any pay increase awarded...during the lock-down period and deferred for processing until the July pay roll, will not be backdated".

A spokeswoman for Connect, the trade union that represents managers and professionals in the communications industry, said officials were "unhappy" about BT's decision not to backdate any pay. The union will be holding talks with BT concerning the matter and has asked for "common sense to prevail".

One shocked insider told El Reg: "I've never known a pay freeze that means that if you get promoted at any point between April and the end of June, you don't get paid the new rate until the end of July - and it is not backdated to take account of when you started the new job." ®
