A native speaker would more likely say:
"Is this a good time to talk to you about a pay rise?" (said in humour after the boss has said thank you to a member of staff about some job well done.)

However, you could possiboly use "speak to you about" - it sounds more formal, and is linked with the context, "speak to somebody about" meaning, take them to task, point out some behaviour or other is not acceptable. " I need to speak to you about how often you've been arriving late for work. Can you come into my office please."
