Pay

We strive to secure fair pay and reward that recognises value delivered by FDA members and the contribution they make in ensuring the public benefits from high quality public services.
Securing better pay for civil servants is not always the easiest of jobs, but it is essential: public services and the people who deliver them need investment to perform well.

Our members help to keep Britain's vital public services running at a time of immense challenges – and they deserve to be fairly remunerated for their skills, experience and dedication.

FDA National Officers work tirelessly at departmental level to secure the best pay deals available for delegated grades, with collective bargaining agreements in more than 200 employers.

We take a lead on pay for the Senior Civil Service through our yearly evidence to the Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB) and have submitted evidence to the National Crime Agency Remuneration Review Body (NCARRB) since 2016.

The FDA also works at a cross-departmental level to unlock increased funding and secure long-term reforms to ensure pay policy is fit for purpose, enabling the civil service to motivate, recruit and retain a talented workforce while providing value for taxpayers.
