PCS Defence Sector group has received the pay offer from DE&S for 2018 and the GEC has rejected it.
We are now in receipt of the department’s best and final pay offer for 2018, following a period of negotiation with the trade unions.
It is with great sadness that MoD group announce the passing of Jacqueline 'Jacqui' Edwards (nee Frost)
Jacqui passed away in the early hours of Sunday 5 August 2018.
Jacqui was originally from MoD group and was an NEC member of predecessor unions CSU and NUCPS as well as PCS and chair of the National Womens Advisory Committee for many years.
Our thoughts are with Jacqui’s friends and family at this difficult time
On 3rd July the trade unions met with the MoD pay team in the expectation that the department would be in a position to lay out its thoughts on pay within the confines of the Treasury remit. However it became quickly apparent that they were not in a position to do so. In fact, their proposals were still sitting on the secretary of State’s desk for sign off.
The Treasury has finally released the remit to government departments without consultation with the unions and in the face of previous commitments to consult. Despite high levels of inflation, and constant erosion of your living standards, the government has decided that the pay cap remains effectively in place.
