Specialised railway policing put at risk by Scottish Government06 September, 2016
13 December 2007
Yesterday this Federation attended the Joint United Kingdom Federation Meeting held in London. A vote of no confidence in Jacqui Smith to deal fairly with police pay and conditions was overwhelmingly passed. Subsequently a statement was issued calling for her resignation.
A range of issues were discussed to counter the unfair and dishonourable implementation of this years pay award and the proposed abolition of the Police Negotiating Board.
It was decided that a jointly funded judicial review of the Home Secretaries decision would be commenced. This Federation is contributing a substantial sum to assist in the action. A mass rally is being planned for January. As soon as details are known they will be distributed. A ballot of all police officers regarding industrial rights will also be organised.
