Don’t give us a pay rise!
Saturday 1st December 2012, 2:50PM GMT.
A LAST-MINUTE challenge has been made to stop States Members getting a 1.8% pay rise.
Just minutes before the deadline for objections to a proposed £818 pay rise, St Saviour Constable Sadie Rennard formally lodged a proposition to freeze salaries.
She says that although she might not find herself on many States Members’ Christmas card lists, she could not accept that the rise was justified.
The rise was proposed by the independent pay review body on 30 October and States rules say it would have automatically come into force on 1 January if Mrs Rennard’s proposition had not been submitted before 5.15 pm yesterday.
