INCREMENTAL PAY IS NOW FROZEN FOR TWO YEARS EXCEPT FOR THOSE OFFICERS BELOW PAY POINT 3 WHO WILL CONTINUE TO GET IT UNTIL THEY REACH PAY POINT 3.
Current pay scales are published in PNB Circulars. Pay is uprated annually from 1 September. The current 3 year pay deal is 2.65% for 2008, 2.6% for 2009 and 2.55% for 2010. Details may be obtained from the JBB or from the Office of Manpower Economics (OME) website www.ome.uk.com
Pay arrangements for federated ranks were revised between 2003- 2005 in order to reduce the length of the incremental pay scales. Some changes to incremental dates were necessary to avoid introducing anomalies and ensure fairness across the service.
