FDA calls for fair pay system at NCA

The FDA has published its evidence to the National Crime Agency's Pay Review Body, calling for a comprehensive reform of the pay system.

The FDA represents senior managers and leaders in the NCA. Senior staff make a massive contribution to the fight against serious and organised crime in the UK including now when fraudsters are exploiting public fears about the coronavirus.
The FDA's National Officer for the NCA Wynne Parry, who collated the evidence, said: "Pay levels in the NCA do not match those of comparable organisations in law enforcement. Whilst we acknowledge that the NCA is taking steps to reform the existing pay structures we are concerned that the differential approach taken does not go far enough and risks the loss of skilled staff leaving the Agency to go elsewhere to secure better pay."

"We call on the Home Office and the Treasury to make the necessary funding available to the Agency so that it can open up a reformed and fair pay system to all staff in the Agency."
