Would echo what Tommy says about only pursuing a counter offer if you're willing to walk away from it. If they call your bluff and you stay I would doubt they'll ever treat you fairly. I got a decent bump in my package a couple of years ago by being non-combative. I did a telephone interview organised via an email I received via Linkedin. I told my boss about it and within an hour the MD had me in and I told him the craic that I was happy in my work etc but I was being offered more elsewhere for the same job etc. Got a decent bump and it wasn't held against me. Going in all guns blazing isn't always the answer so you'll need to play the game according to how you think they'll react.

Also, those salary bands are madness if you can earn the same on Grade 5 and Grade 1.
