Champion fair pay for civil servants
The FDA is calling on the Minister for the Cabinet Office, David Lidington, to be the civil service’s champion.
We are asking him to stand up for civil servants, and to demand recognition for their hard-work, their creativity, and their ability to keep the nation running.
Why is this important?
Ministers across the government are fighting for their public sector workers. It’s time for the civil service to have its own champion.
The Government has officially lifted the public sector 1% pay cap, yet FDA members have been left barely better off.
In other areas, we have seen action and results. Ministers have fought for better departmental staff pay rises, and won. However, civil servants have been left behind with employers adopting civil service pay remit guidelines and awarding below-inflation 1.5% raises.
Cabinet Secretary Mark Sedwill has described the civil service as “brilliant.” But what is this brilliance worth?
Recent discoveries show that the SCS’s pay gap is widening. When can these employees expect fair and equal reward?
Join our call, and ask David Lidington to speak up for hardworking civil servants.
