GMB Recommend Revised Police Staff Pay Offer And Calls Off Strike Action
The new offer covers two pay years (2014/15 and 2015/16), but would be paid over 18 months says GMB.
GMB members will now be consulted on a new offer from Police Employers for civilian police staff in England and Wales to settle the long running dispute over pay. This is the result of on-going negotiations at the Police Staff Council over the Christmas and New Year period.
As a result GMB and the two other unions for civilian staff in the police service have called off the industrial action which was due to commence with strike action this Friday 23 January.
The offer, which covers the period 1 March 2015 to 31 August 2016, is as follows:
- 2.2%, or £400, increase (whichever is the greater) on all police staff pay points with effect from 1 March 2015
- 2.2% increase in standby allowance with effect from 1 March 2015
Sharon Holder, GMB National Officer, said “The new offer covers two pay years (2014/15 and 2015/16), but would be paid over 18 months.
Full details of the offer will be made available for members to vote on as soon as possible.
The Police Staff Council Trade Union Side ( GMB, UNISON, UNITE)is recommending the offer as the best achievable by negotiation.”
