Police Negotiating Board
The pay and terms of conditions of all 175,000 UK police officers are negotiated through the Police Negotiating Board (PNB). Local Government Employers provides the Employers' Side of the PNB while the Staff Side is represented by the Police Federation, the Superintendents' Association and the Chief Police Officers' Staff Association. Some of the issues negotiated through the PNB are: hours of duty, leave, pay and allowances, and pensions.
The PNB exists to negotiate agreements which it recommends to the Home Secretary. If accepted by the Home Secretary, they are placed within a draft statutory instrument, called Police Regulations, and put to Parliament for approval. PNB agreements are legally binding once placed in regulations.
