Pay talks resume

Please see the PCS Voice – Pay Talks resume setting out the key issues to be raised with DCLG management when pay talks resume later today on the 2017 pay offer. PCS negotiators intend to raise the following issues as a matter of priority:

  • The importance of all staff receiving fully consolidated and pensionable pay increase which reflects both the real level decline in civil service salary levels and current rates of inflation
  • The need to honour the previously promised and long overdue new pay progression arrangements so that all staff can reach their pay band maxima in good time
  • The carrying out of an equality impact assessment of all pay related arrangements and proposals
