Police officers in East Renfrewshire have withdrawn “all goodwill” as part of a pay dispute.

The move comes after a “derisory” offer of a £565 rise was rejected.

By law, officers are not allowed to strike but they are now refusing to start shifts early or take radio equipment home when their shift ends.

Talks between the Scottish Police Federation (SPF) and the Police Negotiating Board, which deals with pay for Police Scotland, continued on Monday but ended without an agreement.

Calum Steele, SPF general secretary, said: “Our sides have agreed to separately consider some of the more technical aspects of each other’s asks, and will seek to do so over the next week to 10 days, with a view to returning to formal further negotiations as soon as possible thereafter.”

A spokesman for Police Scotland said it is “committed” to seeking a settlement.

He added: “We will put arrangements in place to ensure any impact on the public is kept to an absolute minimum.”
