The Civil Service Group Executive Committee met this morning to consider the outcome of the branch consultation exercise on the pay offer as outlined in an article dated 20 April 2021. It was clear from that consultation that members rejected the pay offer and members were particularly angry at the non-consolidated element of the pay offer.

On foot of the rejection by the members, NIPSA has sought a meeting with the Finance Minister. In addition, given NIPSA understands the two year pay offer was sanctioned by the NI Executive, NIPSA has written to the Party Leaders/Ministers on the issue of NICS Pay to seek to have improvements made to the current offer.

NIPSA is also encouraging members to raise the issue of their pay with their MLAs and a separate letter will be issued later which members will be asked to issue to their MLAs.

Following the meeting with the Finance Minister a further article will be issued.
