United Kingdom - Civil service union attacks unfairness of performance-related pay - January 6, 2011

The main civil service union, PCS, has called for the abolition of performance-related pay in the civil service. In reaction to news that UKP 40 million (€ 47.4 million) was distributed as performance-related bonuses in the Ministry of Defence alone, the union argues that this should be distributed more fairly among all workers. General Scretary Mark Serwotka said: “PCS believes the system of performance related pay in the civil service, imposed by a previous Conservative government, is an unfair way to reward staff and should be scrapped with the money redistributed in overall salaries.”
