  • The ballot on whether the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) should seek industrial rights on behalf of members is now open. PFEW’s Joint Central Committee (JCC) had previously taken a decision to introduce an alternative question within the ballot that would take Compulsory Severance into consideration. This decision was revisited at the January statutory meeting of the JCC, when it was decided to simply ask members to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in keeping with the original proposed motion from the Metropolitan Police Federation.
