Time running out for members to complete Pay and Morale Survey

The Police Federation’s 2021 Pay and Morale Survey closes next Tuesday and the Dyfed Powys branch has stressed the importance of all members taking the opportunity to have their say.

The survey has been emailed out to all members who are being urged to take part before the deadline passes.

Branch chair Gareth Jones said:  “I would encourage all our members to take part in the survey before it closes next week and make sure their voices are heard.

“There is no doubt officer morale has fallen in recent years and the zero per cent pay offer has played a big part in this.

“I expect the findings of the survey will reflect those views and hope the Government will take that strength of feeling on board when it comes to future negotiations on pay and conditions.”

National Federation chair John Apter said: “The Government’s decision to freeze police officer pay was met with huge disappointment and anger by our members.

“The current Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB) system has proved it is not fit for purpose and it must be replaced by something which properly takes account of policing interests and is not readily and easily manipulated by the Government.

“This is why I am urging all members to take the time to complete this survey. Your opinion matters and your feedback will give us the evidence to be able to fight for fairer pay and conditions on your behalf.

“Together our voices are stronger and more impactful.”
