Federation calls for 2.8% pay increase for police officers

The PFEW provided oral evidence to the Police Remuneration Review body earlier this month, the body which determines police pay. In January we called for a 2.8% pay increase and you read our submission here.

A letter detailing the content of the oral evidence submitted to the board can be found on the PFEW website. The PRRB will now consider the evidence and issue a report. The report is expected on 17 June 2016.
