Drop in pay

Norfolk has now decided to cut the shift allowence for their PCSO's meaning a drop of between £40-£50 per month. Has anyother force done this?

How can they drop it, as it should be in your contract.

When you say drop in shift pay do you mean they are reducing the shift requirements?

Assuming you work to the PSC Handbook shift pay is governed by the criteria set out in Section1 parts 7 & 8

7 covers unsocial hours whilst 8 covers shift work

So assuming your shift pay was correct in the first place the reduction must result from a change in the spread of hours, number of shifts containing anti-social hours or some other change in working hours.

Shift and unsocial hours money is intended to compensate you for working these as opposed to regular day time work.

You may well have a Force agreement on protection and notice periods. In any case I would regard this as a contract change requiring negotiation and agreement or subject to the statutory notice period.

Your union can advise on this local issue

It happened to us in Northumbria.
When we first started we used to work permenant 4pm-12am then they decided to align us with the NPT, as a result we only work up to 11pm and have day shifts as well. Due the change, everyone lost somwhere in the region of £300 per year.
The union were unable to really do anything about it, that's just the way it was.

Agreed, very de-motivating indeed.
