Loss of allowances owing to Winsor

Back to all Motions

2012 Police & Justice Conference
14 June 2012

Conference, the Winsor recommendations would mean that many of our members would lose a substantial amount of pay , and pension, because they will no longer receive shift premia or weekend allowance.

This loss will mean people may lose their homes, will fall into debt, may decide they cannot afford to start a family, or will not be able to fund university education for their children. This list could go on & on – the impact would be immense.

We must vigorously oppose these recommendations.

This motion calls upon the SGE to launch a public awareness campaign about these unfair proposals that would affect the very staff the country depends upon to deal with their emergency calls, and to detain offenders.
