Champion fair pay for civil servants

Reason for signing

  • Civil service salaries need to keep pace with those in private practice. Currently civil servants are the only people whose salaries reduce in real terms on an annual basis. We are also working significantly more hours and it is our professionalism and goodwill that is keeping the Department going. Pay needs to reflect qualifications and experience and where overtime is routine, staff need to be paid for doing it.
