Police accept State Government’s wages policy

The WA Government is pleased that the WA Police Union has accepted its $1,000 per annum public sector wages policy.

It was revealed that the majority of union members, 86 per cent, voted in favour.

This announcement follows the Civil Service Association, which covers nearly 40,000 employees, also accepting the public sector wages policy.

In May 2017, the public sector wages policy was introduced to help with the difficult task of repairing the State Budget.

This includes a $1,000 a year salary increase, 10 days paid family and domestic violence leave, and preference for direct employment of staff.
