Public sector staff still expecting pay rise in 2010

Most public sector workers are still expecting a pay rise in 2010, despite the planned clampdown on their earnings.

A survey by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has found that most public sector workers still expect a pay rise of 2% next year, regardless of the proposed 1% cap. But the survey also found that one in four private sector workers and a fifth of public sector workers do not expect any pay rise in 2010, reports the BBC.

CIPD reward adviser Charles Cotton said: “Public sector workers are clearly not sensing that the pay storm clouds are gathering. It looks like 2010 will prove to be the last hurray of this gilded age.”
