GMB Scotland in Mitie / Scottish Police College – No delay on pay, £8.45 today!

The fight for a living wage for Mitie / SPC housekeepers is underway. GMB Scotland is absolutely clear that there should be no delay on pay – our members deserve £8.45 today!

Mitie’s paltry pay offer of 10 pence an hour on the national minimum wage is an affront to the work you do on a daily basis for Police Scotland.

That’s why we have written to the Scottish Government and Police Scotland calling for urgent interventions.

It’s a scandal that one of our biggest public service organisations can’t pay its staff the living wage. And Mitie’s refusal to lift our members out of the low pay trap flies in the face of the Scottish Government’s ‘fair work’ agenda.

Both Mitie and Police Scotland have the means to ensure you receive a living wage of £8.45 an hour. So there should be no delay on pay, £8.45 today! It’s time SPC housekeepers received a living wage.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact GMb Scotland on 01324 670676 (Falkirk Office) or email
