Opposition Day — Public Sector Pay Negotiation. — 20 Jun 2012 at 18:48
The majority of MPs voted to support changes to the way public sector pay is negotiated.
The text of the rejected motion was:
- That this House
- notes that the national pay review bodies have been an effective way of setting pay while allowing for appropriate regional and local variation consistent with the need to recruit, retain and motivate staff and to keep tight control of public spending;
- believes that seeking to alter existing frameworks for negotiating and setting public sector pay could increase costs for the taxpayer as well as exacerbating regional inequalities;
- further notes that unanswered questions about Scottish separation risk uncertainty for the thousands of staff employed in Scotland under UK-wide pay negotiations and bargaining mechanisms;
- further believes that co-ordinated national negotiations can also reduce uncertainty, help financial planning and reduce costly and time consuming bureaucracy, local negotiations and disputes; and
- opposes moves intended to weaken or dismantle efficient and stable arrangements for negotiating and setting public sector pay.
