Police staff unions angered by employers ’ offer of a pay freeze
Police staff unions UNISON, Unite and the GMB have reacted with anger after employers offered their members in England and Wales a pay freeze yesterday. With inflation running at 3.9% RPI, this would be a pay cut in real terms. The employers – the National Police Chiefs Council, the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners, and the Home Office – offered the same to police staff as the home secretary imposed on police officers last week: a £250 increase for those earning up to £24,000, with nothing for anyone else.

UNISON launches consultation over NHS rise that meets neither expectations nor real living wage
The government has failed to honour its own ‘levelling up’ promises with the disappointing 3% pay rise for NHS workers in England, says UNISON. The award announced last week doesn’t meet the real living wage of £9.50 per hour for the lowest paid health service workers and widens the gap between those at the top and bottom of the scale, the union says. The 3% increase means the lowest earners will get a rise which is just one sixth of those at the top of the NHS pay scales. UNISON will begin consulting NHS workers later this week on whether they accept the rise, or oppose it and are prepared to ...
