NHS staff signing up for UNISON and for fair pay

 UNISON is campaigning for fair pay in the NHS. 

NHS workers have seen their wages fall by an average of 10% in real terms over the last five years.  The Government has now decided to refuse to pay NHS staff even the inadequate 1% increase recommended by the Pay Review Body.   The Health regulator Monitor has described long-term pay caps as “self-defeating” as they “make recruiting and retaining good quality professionals increasingly difficult.”  The Government is being unfair to NHS staff and patients.

Regional Head of Health Paul Foley addressing the Stockport pay meeting. “Moving up an increment just gets you back up towards the proper rate for the job. It is not a pay rise. We need a decent increase for all NHS staff.”
