A long-running pay dispute could force London police officers to demand the right to strike, a union has warned.

The Metropolitan Police Federation, representing 30,000 officers in the capital, said a Government-proposed deal means "pay cuts in real terms".

Chairman Glen Smyth said other Police Federation branches around the country were also "simmering with outrage".

They don't do much round my area anyway. Don't think i'll notice a difference. I don't blame them though for not doing enough. They've had to make massive cuts here.

Well as right as that may be, the Prison Service are (also) not allowed to strike and they did yesterday......defying a High Court Order at one point so who knows

Better get the troops back from the Middle East then. At least they'd be appreciated here and not shot at and spat at by a bunch of scum. :thumbsup:

Well if you don't like a job or its pay you should leave, Not strike. :roll:

I thought the idea of police is to help the public, If they strike do they actually really care?

The whole public sector got a pay cut in "real terms" - so what, I'll be the first to admit I get paid too much for what I do :):

it would be nice if i could say that!

the police cannot strike, and are now trying to get the right to. you'll probably find that most police officers would be too dedicated to the job to do this.

in my job i have been assaulted, spat at, been threatened with knives and baseball bats, had a gun pointed at me, had a car rammed that i was in, put my life in danger pulling somone back from the wrong side of a motorway bridge.........the list goes on. And we are expected to effectively get paid the same amount as a civii serant?

what some people seem to forget is that police officers are never off duty, work silly hours, can be called into duty at any time and find themselves with restrictions on their private lives.

i know there has been some bad press recently about the police, however the press only seem to want to write about the bad things, and arent interested in the good work that is always done.

i can vouch for the fact that i got out to work, put my life on the line every day and work my backside off to try and make a difference but the fact is that everyone is so demotivated due to various issues, this being one of them, that it makes the job twice as hard when the people who are in essence our bosses dont appreciate or have any idea of what we do.

i agree with you totally, i seem to think that the police have little support eg: the paper work they have to do is unbelievable and then for it all to be trown out off court!!!

they must feel that alot of the time "who is on their side ".

and i i know that i would certainly never want their job, not in the society of which we live in and imo they deserve every penny they get and more.

and as syzable said " bring the boys back home " i for one would be in my element if this was done.:thumbsup:

just my little opponion, even though they are many of you that wont agree with me. sorry! :)

You seem to be one of those police officers that are quite passionate about their Job, But unfortunately not every police officer has the same outlook as you!!

my husband work on the railways, and is constantly under threat, either by the druggies who want to fight the bloody world and think its thier god given right to get on a train and abusive whoever is on it or by the mindless yobs who throw anything they can get thier hands on at a moving train, then theres the under 18's who are now ALL doing the exact same thing...wheres the police i hear you ask....no where cos they cant to a damn thing cos the railway have thier own police and they are based in BRISTOL and my hubby works in wales.... everyday some guard or driver is abused/attacked and no one is bothered not even the managers of the company. only this weekend the person in charge of the cash was held at knife point until he opened the safe, thankfully he is ok but it scared the living hell out of him.
Every time my hubby works a Saturday night im on pins waiting for him to get home so i know hes safe.
and now the police want to go on strike??? fine with me cos they are never there when you want them, they dont even answer the damn phone in my local station, there is little or no police presence in my town and if there is they are the community officers who are not able to do much. Ive seen one of there beaten to a pulp and even then the police took over 45 minutes to come out to one of thier own!


I can sympathise with that. My OH works for the railways too and the amount of times I get messages from him saying he's been verbally abused by people is astounding.
He go phyciscally attacked a month or so ago - did his manager give two hoots - nope. Just a case of "write down what happened so we know how to cope next time!"

The police at our station aren't so bad (I work in one of the retail outlets on it) - its a major station and necesscary to have them there. Do take them a while to crawl out there office when needed tho.

we are talking about police not traffic wardens:whistling:

My dad works under heavy machinery, around electrics all day? The chances of getting shot and surviving are higher than getting electricuted, and I can guarentee he gets paid less to put his life on the line to keep a business operational, same with miners.

if theres one thing that Americans do miles better than we do, it's showing their respect and appreciation to their police, fire service and Armed forces.

In this country all we do is criticise.

I totally agree, my OH is a dedicated police officer, of whom I am very proud, yet our young sons have been ridiculed and bullied for having a copper for a dad.
