HMPPS MEMBERS: PROMOTED SINCE APRIL 2018 LAST CHANCE TO REINSTATE ACHP

HMPPS has identified that staff promoted after 1st April 2018, had to lose their Additional Committed (Pensionable) Hours (ACHP) when moving into F&S or a higher pay band.

The Employer has issued a deadline for members asking to reinstate these hours and established 1st April 2019 as the closing date. Under F&S staff have the right to work their base hours which is 37 hours.

The policy applies to:

• Bands 3 to 5 (operational and Industrial roles)
• Promoted since 1 April 2018 and required to reduce their hours, and lose ACHP payment

The policy is explained in NTS 35/18 (Changes to Pay on Promotion Policies) paragraph 11 (Attached)

(The NTS refers to Band 2 to 5 Officers, but this also applies to staff in industrial roles who move into / have moved into ACHP eligible roles.)

What do you need to do?

Action: contact SSCL

Deadline: 1st April (for April payroll)

Please draw the contents of this circular to all members.

Thanking you in anticipation of your co-operation.

Yours Sincerely
