English police are on the receiving end of the same racist treatment as English nurses when it comes to pay increases.
Earlier this year, our nurses were told that they would be getting the same percentage pay rise as Scottish nurses but rather than a single pay increase like in Scotland, their pay increase was to be staged meaning they were getting less. English police officers have now fallen foul of the same discriminatory policy – they are to reveive the same 2.5% pay rise as Scottish officers but it won’t come into effect until January whilst in Scotland the pay rise is immediate, in full and backdated to September when the British government and the Police entered arbitration over the pay deal.
The emergency services are being treated like pawns in this game of robbing from the English to pay for the Scots. This isn’t a game, peoples’ lives are at risk if nurses and police officers decide that they don’t want to do their job any more because of this racist, discriminatory decision.
Racial discrimination against the English: just another service New Liebour provide.
