Workforce Agreement Police Scotland...




In April 2018, a salary bonus was agreed for police officers for the period from September 2017 to March 2019. Positive progress has been made towards reaching agreement with the unions on a package of measures to harmonize the salaries and conditions of police personnel. “This strong agreement for Scottish police officers is an important recognition of the important work they are doing to support safer and stronger communities. It also reflects the positive relationship between police officers and employers in Scotland, where we have maintained collective bargaining. The Scottish Government has worked closely with the OSG and the Scottish Police to conclude the two-and-a-half-year contract, which puts more money in the pockets of civil servants and gives them and their families security. The ultimate goal of the SPRM exercise was to introduce justice and fairness and provide a modern and attractive set of rewards that meets the needs of a diverse workforce. In 2015, the Police Scotland Staff Pay and Reward Modernisation (SPRM) team began the journey to transfer all staff to a single set of conditions, create a new single pay structure and establish a new set of guidelines. The agreement follows a constructive dialogue within the Police Negotiating Board (PNB) with the Staff Side, consisting of the Scottish Police Superintendents Association (ASPS), the Scottish Police Federation (SPF) and the Scottish Chief Police Officers Staff Association (SCPOSA). The official GNP page includes the Scottish Police Authority (SPA), the Scottish Police Authority and the Scottish Government. “Police officers make up a significant portion of the police and budget. This agreement, over a 31-month period, gives both individuals and police services security if we plan and implement the further transformation of police work to meet the needs of a changing Scotland. One of the benefits outside the scope of the project was pensions, as police officers are members of the municipal pension system and contribution/benefit rates are broadly similar for all employees. Already in April 2013, Police Scotland , the second largest police force in the UK after the Metropolitan Police, was established, bringing together eight former forces and two agency organisations (the Scottish Police Services Authority and the Scottish Drug Enforcement Agency), more than 6,700 employees and 10 incredible conditions.
