News of a proposal to pay big salary increases and bonuses for senior staff at The Co-operative Group has dismayed Save Our Bank supporters.

It's important to note that the bank is now quite separate from the Group and only 30% owned by it. The story is about a report on pay, not yet agreed. But supporters will doubtless be keeping a careful eye on what happens to salaries at the bank.

For the moment however we urge customers to stick with the campaign. That is the best way to bring pressure on the bank.
