“Stop the spin”, PCS has told Scottish Government cabinet secretary for finance, Derek Mackay, as we recognise that new proposals outlined in the Scottish budget still represent a pay cut for public and civil servants.
PCS demands that HMRC commits to becoming a real Living Wage Employer, as it is forced to give administrative assistant grade staff working outside London a supplementary pay increase to ensure the department complies with the government’s National Living Wage.
Do you work for the Ministry of Justice? Are you sick of pay inequality? We’re looking for women members and young members willing to lodge grievances against the department on the grounds of equal pay for work of equal value.
Acknowledging the continuing impact of government pay restraint affecting most PCS members, our national executive has agreed to cap the 2018 PCS subscription increase to no more than 1%. The new rates will be effective from 1 January 2018.
The momentum of the PCS pay campaign is building as we head into 2018 as we argue that the Treasury pay remit, which sets the parameters for settling pay across the civil service, must formally lift the 1% public sector pay cap for civil servants and enable departments to pay above inflation increases.
The way PCS reps book travel and accommodation for union business is changing from 29 December.
