After last year’s debacle over the police pay award the government are still trying to renage on the long-standing pay scheme instigated by Lord Scarman in the early 80s.
We’re being offered a pay rise of 2.325% but are claiming 3.94%.
We should receive our pay rise in September. Last year it was months late & we’re not getting it again this September either due to ‘negotiations’ which have broken down and are going to arbitration.
The government doesn’t always support ‘inflation-busting’ pay caps, only last December they called for a 66% pay rise…for themselves.
