ONS pay offer 2016/17
PCS has considered the pay offer for 2016/17 from ONS. The offer is within the UK government's imposed pay cap of 1%. PCS does not accept the pay cap and so we are unable to agree an offer restricted to that pay cap. Our national executive committee has been authorised, via PCS annual conference, to reject all offers within the 1% cap on behalf of members and so no ballot on the offer will be held.
Members' meetings have been held at both Titchfield and Newport to discuss the offer.
PCS is developing a campaign on pay that will include building political support for decent cost of living rises and the end of low pay.
