Little Christmas Cheer

There will be little Christmas cheer in the police service this week, as the government continues its quest to drive even deeper divisions within the service. While officers continue to demand their recent pay increase of 2.5% is backdated to September 1st, police staff have been told this week they are to receive a 2.5% rise backdated to, yes you've guessed it, September 1st (see news). It's clear that this is not an argument about money, but rather a determined attack on the police pay bargaining machinery that the government is so anxious to dismantle.

The police renounced their right to strike in 1919 in return for better pay and conditions. The mechanism to negotiate pay may be out of step with current systems to reward public sector workers, but it has stood the test of time with both sides acting responsibly. The Home Secretary has trampled over it, which is not something officers of all ranks will tolerate. This is an issue that will not just go away. Officers are angry. It may well be doubtful that there is an appetite for strike action, but they will find other means of demonstrating their disgust at their treatment.

At the top of the agenda for discussion at this week's MPA meeting is how to charge for policing events, saying that it will strive for full cost recovery by April 2009, maybe a sign of police authorities beginning to play hardball with local and national government departments.
