Colleagues,

As you may know last Friday Divisional Commanders were given the first round of figures in respect of the reductions in PC strength that the PMIT 2 process will bring. Although the force are making it clear that the figures are part of a consultation process, what is equally as clear is that the reductions have got to come from somewhere as GMP simply has not got the financial resources to maintain the current numbers. With that in mind from a personal point of view I cannot see much changing - the money has to come from somewhere.

Web Q and A with GMP Federation.

On Monday, 25 June, Greater Manchester Police Federation chairman Ian Hanson and secretary Jackie Bowen answered questions from GMP officers on pay, pensions promotions and the future of policing.

Dear colleagues,

We are aware that there are many members around the country who cannot attend the march on 10th May for a variety of reasons, but they will be with us in spirit and wish to be able to demonstrate their support.

To all Benevolent Fund members

In relation to the pamper event poster recently circulated to you please note that the 19th May date is now fully booked and only a few places left on the 22nd September date.

Dear Colleague

Further to my e-mail of 29th April below.

At the first meeting of both sides of the PNB Working Group to consider police officer pensions on Wednesday 2nd May, the Official Side informed us that whilst some of the information in the letter of 27th March from the Home Secretary had been marked ‘restricted’, this should not have been the case. They apologised for the error and confirmed that the information provided could now be circulated.

You will by now have seen the contents of the second report produced by Tom Winsor into our pay and conditions. This is probably the biggest challenge we in the Police Federation have faced in our history. To show our strength of feeling we are holding a national march in London on Thursday 10th May 2012  and it is imperative that we mobilise every police officer who is available.

A confirmation that the Winsor Part 2 report into police officer pay and conditions is to be published tomorrow, Thursday 15th March at 10.30am.

We are aware the important document is in excess of 1000 pages long so it is likely it will take some time to digest.

How does the Winsor Review affect my CRTP application?

The result of Winsor Part 1 and the subsequent findings of the Police Arbitration Tribunal is that CRTP will be retained for those officers already in receipt of CRTP, but the scheme is to be frozen to new applicants for a period of two years. The effective date of the freeze on new applications is yet to be ratified but this is expected to be 1st April 2012.

On Monday (13 February) Chris Burrows, chairman of Greater Manchester Police Federation, and Ian Hanson, chairman elect, held the Federation’s first live question and answer web chat with rank and file officers in the force.

Here is the transcript of the session which was published live on the federation Twitter accountand Facebook page.

Winsor web chat

On Friday (30 March) Ian Hanson, chairman of Greater Manchester Police Federation, and Jackie Bowen, federation secretary, chairman elect, held a web chat with rank and file officers in the force mainly focussing on reaction to the publication of the Winsor 2 report into pay and conditions. Here is the transcript of the session which was published live on the federation Twitter account and Facebook page.
