Gwent Police Federation members are being urged to complete this year’s pay and morale survey.

Branch chair Matthew Candy says the findings will be used to support the Federation’s national campaign for fair pay and an independent pay system.

“Make your voices heard,” he said, “This is a really important survey which will give us a clear picture of the challenges facing our members as the cost of living crisis bites.

“Your feedback will provide evidence to support our campaign for improved pay and conditions and for an independent pay mechanism.”

The survey is launched on Monday 5 September and aims to gain views from frontline officers on a range of key issues.

The results will be used to support Police Federation campaign for fairer pay and an independent pay mechanism.

The survey findings will also enable it to highlight areas where change is needed and support its drive to improve working conditions for officers.

And for the first time, this year’s survey will also gather evidence on demand, capacity and welfare issues to give the Government, key stakeholders and members of the public a comprehensive insight into the realities of policing.

National chair Steve Hartshorn said: “Survey fatigue is understandable, this is why we’ve taken measures to amalgamate the pay and conditions surveys, but your opinion matters to us, and by taking the time to fill in this year’s pay and morale survey, you can help us make a difference and fight for what you need, because together our voices are stronger and more impactful.”

The survey is conducted by the Police Federation of England and Wales’ in-house research department and is the only consistent national survey that represents members’ attitudes to pay and conditions.
