NHS Pay Consultation

UNISON’s next move on NHS pay is in your hands

3%. That’s what the government has decided NHS staff in England deserve.

This pay rise is not only short of the mark; it’s unfair.  It leaves NHS  staff at the bottom of the pay scale stranded below the real Living Wage, and further stretches the gap between the highest and lowest paid.

UNISON repeatedly asked for pay talks to agree the decent pay rise you really deserve, but the government refused. After months of dither and delay, it’s now imposing this pay decision, not asking you. But just because there’s no negotiating table, doesn’t mean you have to stay silent. UNISON members have led every stage of this pay campaign.

Now you and hundreds of thousands of your colleagues have an important choice as to how we respond collectively to the decision on 3%. You’ve got a powerful voice in UNISON, the largest trade union in the NHS. This is your union and it’s your turn to speak up.
