Following pay talks led by UNISON, the NHS unions have secured £4.2 billion of new money to fund a proposed three-year pay deal for NHS staff. UNISON believes this is a better deal than will be achieved through the Pay Review Body (PRB).

The proposals will end the 1% cap and give all staff meaningful increases.

That is why we are recommending that you vote to accept it.

Living on a knife-edge – survey reveals what a pay rise would mean to NHS employees

Being able to feed their families, afford dental treatment, repair their cars or pay off debts are some of the things that health workers could afford if the government gave them a decent pay rise, according to a survey released today (Sunday) by UNISON.

The NHS is not out of the woods yet

The government has shifted on NHS pay, but there could still be a sting in the tail

The issue

Healthcare staff have now sustained six years of pay restraint at great cost to their living standards, and causing great damage to their morale.

The NHS can’t go on like this. It simply isn’t right for NHS pay to be held back while the cost of living keeps rising.

Pay restraint has resulted in the equivalent annual pay cuts of £2,288 for a cleaner, £2,818 for a ward administrator, £4,846 for a nurse and £6,134 for a midwife.

The new government has a choice.

It can choose to restore the independence of the well-regarded Pay Review Body system to make the pay recommendations it believes are needed to maintain recruitment and retention at the levels the service needs.

Or it can allow the current, unsustainable staffing situation to spiral out of control.

UNISON is serious about fair pay for NHS staff, and we will not stop the fight until there is fair pay for health workers.
