- 2018 Police & Justice Service Group Conference
- 21 June 2018
- Carried as Amended
Conference recognises that the police staff pay negotiations should be approached in a different way following the extended 2017 negotiations and subsequent disappointed settlement.
Conference acknowledges this was negatively influenced by the police officers Pay Review Body award and in addition, due to the timing of the consultation process, members saw UNISON colleagues in other public sectors achieve better outcomes.
Conference therefore requests that SGE conducts a review with branches on moving the anniversary date back to April. Moving to this date would break the link to the police officers PRB, enable police branches to take part in more effective and inclusive national public sector pay campaigns and potentially improve the police staff negotiators bargaining position.
