Government considers reforms for public service staff

The
Government is considering new reforms to help protect public service workers
and avoid further confrontation with trade unions, according to reports.

The
Government is apparently discussing a move that would give central government
staff the same level of protection for pay and conditions as public sector
workers at local level.

Any
such deal would cover services provided by central government, the Home Office,
the Department of Health and the Ministry of Defence.

The
Financial Times claims ministers want to extend a deal struck in February which
forced private companies providing local services to offer transferring
staff  terms that were ‘no less
favourable’.
