Metropolitan Police group

About the group

PCS represents a majority of MPS police staff.
During this period of austerity and government attacks on the public sector our role is essentially a defensive one - protecting jobs, allowances and terms and conditions. It's important to record what our bargaining, campaigning and organising has achieved through strong membership support.
So here's a list of some recent PCS achievements. Being in a trade union has never been more important.
  • Ensured no enforced compulsory redundancies
  • Stopped the privatisation of security officers at the Palace of Westminster 
  • Prevented the loss of up to 1,260 neighbourhood PCSO jobs in the 2014 review
  • Run a high-profile campaign when neighbourhood PCSOs were again threatened in 2015, which shaped the media and political debate
  • Protected premium pay and 12.5% shift disturbance allowance
  • Secured an additional one-off 1 day's leave for all police staff in the 2013 pay dispute
  • Protected typists by ending the unnecessary use of agency staff
  • Challenged poor treatment of staff with disabilities
  • Won a guarantee that pregnant staff don't need to evidence sickness of less than seven days
  • Won guarantees for police staff being asked to sign confidentiality agreements
  • As a result of PCS representations, Roads and Transport Policing Command (RTPC) agreed to indefinitely suspend their unpopular proposals for a new shift system; new proposals will again have to be fully consulted on with PCS (March 2016).
In addition to all the collective consultation and negotiations and campaigns, we also represent 100s of members individually each year, successfully defending many staff in disciplinary, misconduct and appeal hearings.
