Junior police yesterday said they were unhappy with a proposed pay increase because nearly 10,000 officers would not benefit. And members of five other disciplinary forces yesterday began a signature campaign to protest at being left out of the pay rise completely. Chairman of the Junior Police Officers' Association Cheung Shu-tsang said: 'We have some reservations about the proposal as it does not take care of all the junior police officers.' The proposal to raise the maximum pay for junior officers by one point on the civil service pay scale - between $595 and $1,610 a month - will benefit the 62 per cent of junior officers who are earning their maximum salary. That means about 9,880 of the total 26,000 officers will not receive any immediate benefit. However, Mr Cheung said there was nothing staff could do if the Government refused to adjust the pay for all junior officers. He declined to comment on the protest by other disciplinary officers, who claim the Civil Service Bureau has given preferential treatment to police. Immigration, Customs and Excise, Correctional Services, Government Flying Service and Fire Services officers are angry that the government-appointed consultant who recommended the salary rise was only told to examine police pay. Stephen Wong Wai-hung, staff chairman of the Disciplined Services Consultative Council, said the officers felt they had been unfairly treated. Mr Wong said the council would meet the Standing Committee on Disciplined Services Salaries and Conditions of Service tomorrow and complain to provisional legislators on Thursday.
