Petition Action

Pay rises and pay parity for firefighters, police and paramedics.

Petition Details

We ask the Government to fund pay rises in line with inflation, plus 1% for firefighters, police and paramedics and to seek pay equality between these emergency service workers.

Additional Information

Police officers can earn £200 per week more than a Firefighter and a Paramedic.
Unequal cross service pay is unjustified as all emergency workers contribute equally to society and the Government should accept a Firefighter, a Paramedic and a Police officer are equal in terms of pay and their commitment to the Communities they serve.

Firefighters, police and paramedics have suffered 10-12 years of austerity and sub inflationary pay rises for too long. Firefighters, police and paramedics should have parity of pay and this should be discussed fully in Parliament.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
