Annual pay and morale survey launches

Pay and morale survey

Our biggest members’ survey of the year launches today, 9 April 2018.

Our pay and morale survey is the only survey to provide a national picture of officers’ views on their pay and conditions.

The PFEW General Secretary Andy Fittes said: “The survey is an essential way for us to gain a greater understanding of how our members are feeling across the 43 forces.

“The findings are a crucial source of evidence which we use in our submission to the Police Remuneration Review Body (PRRB) at the end of the year to influence positive change for our members, and better pay and working conditions for all officers.”

The findings from the survey also enable us to reflect our members’ views on range of topics and open a debate with Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabularies and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS), the College of Policing, the Home Office, politicians and other key stakeholders.

Evidence from our 2017 pay and morale survey led to us insisting on an uplift in pay of 3.4% this year. Additionally, we have argued that the 1% element of last year’s uplift that was unconsolidated should now be consolidated, and should not affect this year’s uplift.

The survey is sent to all of our 123,000 members’ and closes on 15 May 2018. The findings are due to be published in the summer.
