The GSD note Unite the Union’s statement on the pay claim they will be tabling to the MOD to redress a real terms loss in wages because of policies adopted by the UK Government.
GSD Leader Keith Azopardi said: “the GSD is supportive of the Union’s bid to cure historic imbalances caused by UK Government policy.
Clearly MOD workers have been impacted by policies adopted in the UK. These policies have not factored in any unique Gibraltar issues and will have created disparities and real loss in value of earnings over the last few years. This will have affected the standard of living of workers and their families. The GSD hope the MOD and Union will find a practical way forward that will meet the aspirations of MOD workers as soon as possible.”
