Police Federation again dissatisfied with proposed wage increase

by November 13th, 2017

The Police Federation has called an All-island Branch Board Meeting after what it says was an unsatisfactory proposal by the government for a wage increase for the 2017-2019 contract period.

The Police Federation and the government held a meeting this morning (Nov 13) to discuss wage increase.

The police federation represents rank-and-file police personnel.

Chairman of the Police Federation, Sergeant Raymond Wilson says the government again proposed a 3% wage increase for the contract period.

Sergeant Wilson says the police federation stated its dissatisfaction with that number when it was proposed at the last meeting in September.

 

He notes that this will not be tolerated and the all island meeting to be held on Thursday will be to map the way forward.

 

Sergeant Wilson says the job description of police officers warrants a better wage increase from the government.
