Police staff pay

Dear colleague

I am writing to update you on the Police Staff Council’s pay negotiations on the Trade Union Side’s pay and conditions claim for 2021.

The Employers’ Side made a final offer to the Trade Union Side last month which was as follows:

  • A £250 consolidated increase to all police staff on pay points 7-18 from 1 September 2021
  • A review of police force leave arrangements on a without prejudice basis.

The Trade Union Side (UNISON, UNITE and GMB) has now decided to undertake a consultative ballot of their members on the offer, with options either to accept the offer or to reject it and to give support for industrial action.

We expect to receive notification of the outcome in mid-September. We will update you further thereafter.

Yours sincerely

David Algie
Employers’ Side Secretariat
