With a quiet release on Friday evening, the treasury snuck out a u-turn on the cap on public sector payments.
In 2015, the TPA proposed a £95,000 cap on golden goodbyes, which entered the Conservative manifesto and became law in 2016. But it wasn’t until five years later, in November last year, that ministers forced reluctant civil servants to finally implement the cap. Now, just three months on, Whitehall mandarins and union bosses have managed to get it overturned.
We won’t let this slide. Sign our petition and get the government to reintroduce the cap.
Stop the public sector golden goodbyes.
