Pay rises static.
Settlements in private firms and the public sector have been the same, according to a study by Industrial Relations Services.
Half of all deals in the public sector were worth between 3 per cent and 3.2% in the year to October.
Sheila Attwood, of IRS, said: "Our figures provide a now-familiar picture of the benign state of UK pay bargaining.
"In the three months to the end of October 2005, the median - midpoint in the range - basic pay award across the economy stood at 3%.
"All eyes are now on the busy New Year bargaining round to see how employers react to slowing headline inflation."
