S3 Ep5 – How to rate a pay offer with Jamie Thompson

Police officers have discovered that their pay will rise by seven per cent from September.


It provides respite, but pressure on their pockets won’t relent.


Cheshire Police Federation chairman Jamie Thompson tells host Andrew Simpson what the impact will be on his members’ personal finances.


He outlines too the challenge of articulating a response everybody agrees with, and explains why the method for deciding policy pay awards must change.
