States Employment Board on States Members' pay

05 November 2012

The States Employment Board met this afternoon (5 November 2012) and its members agreed unanimously to forgo the increase in pay proposed by the States Members Remuneration Review Body for 2013.

SEB Members believe a pay rise for Members would not be justified during this period of pay restraint for States employees and are calling on all States Members to follow suit.

The Chair of SEB, Senator Ian Gorst, said “The SEB is grateful to the Review Body for the work undertaken on this issue. We will now be writing to the Privileges and Procedures Committee to ask them, together with the Review Board, to consider the wider structure of States Members’ pay.

"This would include the possibility of differentiated pay levels and pensions for States Members. We believe the Review Body has already recommended investigating pensions for Members.”

SEB suggests that any changes in the structure of States Members’ pay should coincide with the reduction in the number of States Members proposed by the Electoral Commission. This would make it possible for any changes to remain cost neutral.
