CIRC 164: PRESS RELEASE

Please find attached our press release and attached documents in respect of the announcement today on the Government rejection of recommendation 3, which would have seen some of our lowest paid members in fair and sustainable band 3 receive a £3000 increase from 1st September 2020, had the Government adhered to the clear recommendation backed up by evidence from the Pay Review Body.

The NEC will be meeting on Friday 11th December 2020 to determine how best we protect the interests of our members from this ultimate betrayal by Government.

Yours sincerely

STEVE GILLAN
General Secretary


Yours sincerely

MARK FAIRHURST
National Chair
