Public sector pay cap lift confirmed

Published 13th September 2017

The Government announced yesterday that the long-standing 1% cap on public sector pay rises in England and Wales is to be lifted. It has been revealed that police officers will receive a 1% rise plus a 1% bonus, with prison officers getting a 1.7% rise - both funded from existing budgets. However, unions have said the increases are not enough as they are still below the rate of inflation. Unite leader Len McCluskey has even said he is ready to break the law and serve jail time in pursuit of a fair pay rise for public sector workers by organising co-ordinated strike action.
