The Cabinet Office does not have any plans to hold a public consultation on any elements of the civil service pay remit guidance.

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and I met with the General Secretaries of the FDA, Prospect and PCS trade unions on 27 June to discuss the Civil Service pay guidance, which was published on 25 June.

In my capacity as the Minister with responsibility for Civil Service HR, including trade unions, I previously met with the General Secretaries of the FDA and Prospect on the 22 February 2018, and with the PCS General Secretary, on the 27th February 2018.

Cabinet office officials regularly meet with trade union representatives to discuss a range of workforce issues, including pay.
