Pay Campaign – a pound an hour increase for all

Back to all Motions

Conference
2015 Health Care Service Group Conference
Date
27 November 2014
Decision
Carried

Conference congratulates the Health Group Executive and the leadership of our sister NHS unions on the campaign of industrial action to defend the real value of NHS pay.

Conference however is concerned at the exceptionally modest ambition of this campaign and believe that for workers to be encouraged to take action we need to seek to regain ground lost over the last years.

Over this period increases in basic living costs has had a huge impact on low paid workers.

To deal with this end Conference calls on the Health Service Group Executive to propose a flat rate UK claim of £1 an hour for NHS staff based on NHS pay scales as they exist in Scotland. Basing this claim on Scottish pay levels will help by reuniting the NHS pay structure across the UK.
