Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing to update you on the Police Staff Council’s pay negotiations for 2023 following the Employers Side’s final offer to the Trade Union Side. The final offer was as follows:

  • A 7 per cent pay increase on all pay points on the PSC pay spine as of 1 September 2023
  • A 7 pre cent increase on Standby Allowance from £32.23 to £34.49 as of 1 September 2023
  • A review of the lower quartile of the PSC pay spine during the 2023-24 pay year. This review will take place on a without prejudice basis in the PSC Pay and Reward Working 

The Trade Union Side (UNISON, UNITE and GMB) undertook a consultative ballot of their members on the offer during August. We have been notified that all three Unions have accepted the offer and therefore we can confirm a pay agreement for 2023.

A PSC Joint Circular (No 334) will be issued shortly to confirm the details of the 2023 Pay Agreement including the uprated PSC pay spine.

Yours sincerely

David Algie
Employers Side Secretariat
