« I am also pleased that progress is being made in the negotiations on harmonising the remuneration and remuneration of police personnel. The agreement follows a constructive dialogue within the Police Negotiation Board (PNB) with the Staff Side, which is composed of the Association of Scottish Police Superintendents (ASPS), the Scottish Police Federation (SPF) and the Scottish Chief Police Officers Staff Association (SCPOSA). The official website of the PNB includes the Scottish Police Authority (SPA), Police Scotland and the Scottish Government. All the details of the agreement are set out in a GNP circular to be published by the Scottish Government in the coming days. In addition to the immediate allocation of wages, the agreement will also address issues of inequality and anomalies related to wage developments. It also includes a commitment to clarify work practices with respect to courts and night shifts, and ensures financial stability and security over time. In April 2018, a salary allowance for police personnel for the period from September 2017 to March 2019 was agreed. Positive progress is being made in reaching an agreement with the trade unions on a package to harmonise the salaries and working 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 Spa and Police Scotland to conclude the two-and-a-half-year deal that puts more money in the pockets of civil servants and gives them and their families security. « I am delighted that, through constructive dialogue, we have agreed on an investment in payment that recognises the important and valuable work our police officers do to keep the people of Scotland safe. In 2015, Police Scotland`s Staff Salary and Rewards Modernisation Team (SPRM) began bringing the entire workforce to a single set of conditions, creating a new uniform pay structure and establishing a new set of policies. « The salary allowance represents an important and deserved result for police officers. The prize will be re-dyed on September 1, 2018 and is valid until March 31, 2021. The salary allowance, which is part of a strategic investment in policing, provides that all officers with the rank of Deputy Chief of Police receive an immediate and significant increase in their salary. .
