An announcement has been made on the intranet regarding the Prison Service Pay Review Body recommendations for 2018/19 pay award. HMPPS have agreed to accept "the spirit" of the recommendations.
Sadly for our members, this falls well short of our pay demands this year and even more disappointing is that it doesn't even meet the rate of inflation, or go any way to address the year on year pay restraint our members have experienced.
Whilst many PCS grades are now covered under the review body remit, and will receive 'like' offers, other grades, i.e F&S B6 are yet to be negotiated. Rest assured, HMPPS national branch will deliver the expectation that the same increases are applied.
