NATIONAL NEGOTIATING MEETING
On Thursday 5th June 2003 at the National
Negotiating Committee amongst items tabled by Force were the following: -
Redundancy and Resettlement Policies
Dog Handlers Allowance
Definition of a ‘Day’
The Federation stated that in relation to the Police Reform
Package it was accepted in full and no problems or delays had been anticipated
in its introduction.
The Force reiterated their position, they wished to pay
Police Reforms but only after the successful outcome of negotiations on the
three other items.
We viewed the withholding of the Police Reform Package and
linkage to successful negotiations into other unrelated issues as totally
Whilst we are willing to discuss any subject the outcome of
negotiations cannot be predicted and may not be what the Force and Police
Committee deem successful and therefore we have formally failed to agree on this
These matters will now progress through the machinery of
Negotiation, ultimately if not resolved to an independent arbitrator.
