Delayed pay rise will leave staff disappointed, say health unions
Health unions representing 1.2 million NHS staff in England have responded to the 3% NHS pay rise announced by the government today (Wednesday), which accepts the recommendation made by the independent pay review body. UNISON head of health and chair of the joint health unions Sara Gorton said: “Dedicated staff have been waiting far too long for a decent pay rise. That the government has moved from the insult of 1% shows ministers realise the damage that’s been done. “But the memory of 1%, combined with lengthy delay, has done lasting damage to morale and the trust staff have in ministers.

It ’s good the government has moved on NHS pay, but staff deserve more, says UNISON
Commenting on the announcement today (Wednesday) that the government is to give NHS staff in England a 3% pay rise, UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea said: “The government’s acceptance of the NHS pay review body recommendation is an improvement on its earlier miserly 1% proposal. “But the increase falls short of what NHS staff deserve after the past 16 months. It’s less than the wage rise given to Scottish health colleagues and not enough to protect the NHS. “Porters, cleaners, nurses, paramedics and other health workers have waited for months for what they hoped would be a fair deal. ...

Six months ago I took up post as UNISON’s newly elected general secretary. My passion for fighting for every member has been unrelenting for decades, so my plans for our future in UNISON were clear and driven by the experiences of our hard-working members and activists across every region and service group.  I promised that branches, regions, and devolved nations would get the resources they need and my pledge to support every member pitched a bold plan for a new UNISON College. Demanding a new deal for public services and public service workers had to be a central part of our journey out of COVID, as well as...

UNISON’s national executive council (NEC) today congratulated the union’s staff and activists who had earned a very important recent legal victory in protecting the rights of members to strike.

The case involved a UNISON workplace rep who was suspended from work and disciplined in the middle of industrial action about sleep-ins in early 2019. It was a timely victory as the ...

We all want a return to our normal pre-COVID-19 lives, but only a government led by Boris Johnson could think they can just wish it, and it will happen.

It is not an optional extra.
