Government workers are being offered a 2-percent pay increase for the current financial year, which a trade union has already labelled 'totally unacceptable'.

The Isle of Man's Public Services Commission has set out pay awards for the next three financial years which would see public and civil servants' salaries rise by the same percentile for the following two years as well.

Despite inflation being at a three-year-low, the current offer is below inflation which Prospect believes is eroding its members' standard of living.

The PSC says there continues to be "significant financial pressure on the Public Sector and ongoing financial pressures that the Island is facing, remain".
