Staffordshire Police Federation members are being reminded there is still time to let their views be known in the 2021 Pay and Morale Survey.

The survey, which runs until the end of November, aims to gain the views from officers on the frontline and its findings will be used to press the case for fairer pay and better conditions.

Staffordshire branch chair Phil Jones said: “This annual survey always provides a fairly accurate picture of the mood of our frontline officers and this year it seems more pertinent than ever which is why we are urging all members who have not already done so to take part.

“The feelings of anger and betrayal over the public sector pay freeze should not be underestimated and I have no doubt its impact on officer morale will be made crystal clear when the findings are published.

“For that reason I think it is extremely important that all our members take part in the survey and let the Government know exactly how they feel about the way they have been treated. There is still plenty of time to make their voices heard.”

National chair John Apter said: “I am urging all members to take the time to complete this survey. Their opinion matters and their feedback will give us the evidence to be able to fight for fairer pay and conditions. Together our voices are stronger and more impactful.”

The 2021 Pay and Morale Survey is being conducted by the Police Federation’s in-house research department, which plays a vital part in providing strategically important evidence to achieve better pay and conditions for members. The survey will close on 30 November.

Members were sent a link to the survey by email, but if you do not have this, please contact your workplace representative or the Federation office.
