Update for Police Officers on Industrial Rights vote

Front Line Police Officers are set to receive an information pack on the pros and cons of pursuing industrial rights, the Federation’s National Council has heard.


The vote for industrial rights, which as yet has no timeframe, is currently being planned by working groups, with the south east region being led by Neil Mennie, Kent Police Federation Chair.


The Police Federation of England and Wales is calling for the Government to understand the restrictions and limitations put on police officers for the risks they face on a day-to-day basis and for pay to compensate for that impartiality in the pay review process. It also wants both parties to have the ability to secure binding arbitration.


PFEW Deputy National Chair Tiff said: “All we are wanting is fair pay and a fair seat at

the table to effectively negotiate terms and conditions (…) so we can recruit police

officers that want to stay because they are getting paid fairly.”
