Motion text

That this House notes with disappointment the recent below-inflation pay offer by OCS to security staff working on the HM Courts & Tribunals Service estate; believes this offer falls woefully short of what these front-line workers deserve and continues the unacceptable position of poverty pay on the HM Courts & Tribunals Service contract, which has led to widespread problems involving recruitment and retention; expresses concern that OCS is accredited by the Living Wage Foundation despite not paying the Real Living Wage to all staff; supports demands by the PCS union for OCS to table a base-pay offer that meets the Real Living Wage as defined by the Living Wage Foundation and to give security staff full occupational sick pay from day one, an additional day of annual leave, an overtime rate of time and a quarter for weekdays, paid time off for medical appointments, full pay for covid-19 absence, five days paid dependency leave, and five days paid bereavement leave; and calls on the Government and HM Courts & Tribunals Service to apply all possible pressure on OCS to accept these reasonable demands.
