Dear Sir/Madam 

We are pleased to confirm that the Police Staff Council has reached an agreement on a pay award for police staff for 2021/22 and 2022/23 which is as follows: 

  •  A £250 consolidated pay increase on pay points 7 to 18 (inclusive) on the PSC pay spine with effect from 1 September 2021 (to be backdated)
  •  A 2.1 per cent consolidated increase on pay points 7 to 45 on the PSC pay spine with effect from1 April 2022 until 31 August 2023 (to be backdated);
  • A 2.1 per cent increase on Standby Allowance with effect from 1 April 2022 until 31 August 2023 from £31.57 to £32.23
  • An increase in the minimum annual leave entitlement to 24 days and 29 days (after five years) with effect from 1 April 2022
  • A Collective Bargaining Agreement – Reopener Clause which is as follows: 

if in the event that a PRRB annual award is agreed from 1 September 2022 in excess of a 3 per cent award, as part of a single year settlement, the Employers’ Side is prepared to re-open pay negotiations on the 17 month police staff pay award to ensure that police staff do not suffer any detriment to their police officer colleagues.

Any pay points above point 45 that have been constructed in accordance with the Police Staff Council Handbook (Part Three) should also be increased by 2.1 per cent from 1 April 2022.

Please note that for payroll purposes the pay increase on all pay points are rounded up and divisible by three in the PSC Pay Spine (Appendix I).
Yours sincerely
