Immediate pay cut for civil servants earning more than £100k

No Civil (not public) servant is worth a 6 figure salary.  A cap or substantial cut in salary for any civil servant earning more than £100k should be introduced

Why the contribution is important

The quality of the Island's Civil Service is dire - especially when considering some earn mor than £100K.

An immediate cut of 20% in every pound earned over £100K  in civil service pay should be made.  This will save a substantial amount of money.

If implemented alongside a cull of civil servants, we could asave even more money

    And no pay rises for all earning over £55k

    There is no civil service in IOM anymore - they are all public service employees.

    As for salaries over 55k, that is an odd arbitrary cutoff. Maybe better for salary awards to be as amounts not percentages, which would greatly benefit lower paid compared to higher paid, though not sustainable indefinitely as differentials could be eroded too much. The same should apply in the private sector as well as public sector.

    What does need looking at is the abnormally high pension deals. The UK widely accepted norm for final salary schemes if a lump sum of 1.5x salary and no more than 50% as a pension.

    Ireland is now proposing factoring in the value of pensions and job security when making market comparisons of PS remuneration. We should do the same as these carry real costs and real benefit.

    Maybe the first action should be to conduct a serious review of senior and middle management structure and posts in the PS and to streamline if this is needed.
