Barristers: Offer accepted

Criminal barristers voted in October to accept an improved pay offer from the government, and ended industrial action which had closed courts around the country.

Crucially, the government will apply the 15 per cent pay increase it had already offered to cases that are in progress. Announcing the ballot result, the Criminal Bar Association said, “The criminal justice system sits on a knife edge.”
