Rollercoasters

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Well that didn’t take long.

Talks over the next pay rise dispute (yeah, we knew there would be a dispute rather than an agreement) have broken down & are set to go to conciliation, again.

The 3.5% claim has been met with an offer of 2.325%.

Police Federation spokesman, Paul McKeevor said, “The offer of 2.325 per cent is insulting & adds to the sense of injustice experienced by officers last year. We will take our very fair & reasonable claim for 3.5 per cent to conciliation.”

Here we go again…

    Wohoo… first!

    At least they can’t blame inflation this time…

    Did anyone else pick up on that fact, that inflation rose despite public sector pay across the board being limited to 2.5%? Oh dear… I wonder what they are going to blame it on this time… Global Warming? Dolphins getting beached? OR link it to the price of Petrol at the pumps! All those squad cars somehow have to contribute to that…

    Sorry… I let my mind run way with itself again… I should have become an MP and make us of my allowances for my second home! Swines.

    You have no chance of 3.5% ; that would trigger inflationary knock-ons. Inflation is probably more like 7%. The government will override it like they did last year.

    Naw, they will tax you for global warming. Damned if I see how that works though.

    As for offering 0.275% less, and after all the quibbling you’ll be lucky to get 0% of bugger all. And somehow, you’ll be made to feel grateful.

    We are not going to win on pay. The Federation are possibly wasting money now challenging and challenging. Perhaps they are better off striking new gains.
