UNISON has notified the Employers Side of our pay consultation result. We hope that the pay rise can be paid for members early in the New Year.
Good pay and conditions don’t happen by accident. They are the result of collective bargaining by unions. If you are not already a trade union member in your force, join UNISON now to help campaign for better terms and conditions for you and your colleagues. Together we are stronger.
