Have they adjusted the pay increase in line with that afforded to minimum wage workers?

Last email i had was that the fed were polling the 140000 officers with these 2 questions:

1.Do you think the decision of the independent Police Arbitration Tribunal should be binding on the government?

2.In the absence of binding arbitration on the government, do you wish the Police Federation of England and Wales to start to lobby for a change in legislation to allow police officers full industrial rights?

The Poll closed on 25th march with the results given at the annual conference in May.

Won't 2 royally screw up the pensions, especially those of the older officers not in the latest scheme, of anyone accepting new t&cs. My missus reckons that the current pensions would have to be given up if concessions were made on industrial rights.

I am on the old scheme, whereas all new officers are on the new one.

Im not sure they could change us who are already on the old scheme. As they already offered us to change but the majority of us refused and stayed on the sceme we were on.

I admit i dont know a great deal about the pensions and if they could change us with new T&C's

Whatever happends it wont be a quick process!

The Police Federation has been given leave to appeal the decision through the courts.

The latest will be on the pf website - http://www.polfed.org I think.
