The full report states that the 10% shift allowance, paid by the hour (8pm - 6am) is to bring police officers in line with civilian staff (in 1977 officers were given a 9% unsocial allowance, which was consolidated into the wage structure in 1979 and since that date the unsocial allowance has never been increased or index linked to present day, hence why the 10% proposal). I believe civilian staff get a percentage of salary for unsocial pay.
The standby allowance will be for gaffers, and PC on the ground will never receive this.
The £1,200 ‘professional accreditation allowance’ is a new name for SPPs, so nothing new here but a reduction in pay 0f £200.
The weekend allowance is outdated and needs to be reformed Winsor states. Asda, Sainsburys etc do not pay staff double time for Sundays anymore, so why should the police.
Pay freeze for all. No officers gain from these proposals so no point stating they do and you forgot to say officers might be losing Competency pay £1050, increase in pension 1% over 3 years to a grand total of 14% for nothing new.
Quite clearly if the proposals on weekend payments in respect of Police staff (that includes PCSOs) go ahead, most shift workers will see a reduction in their pay.
Arthur has stated that PCSO get an % allowance and are not paid for working weekend work so these proposal with not affect them. Is that not the case?
It looks like Unison are doing what the Fed are doing and using each other for their own needs!
At least you can use the threat of strikes, officers can't.
