Pay Proposals

The pay consultation was launched at the UNISON Health conference. Members are urged to have their say, the consultation runs until the 5th June. The UNISON delegates at conference will be debating the pay proposals on the 17th April.

UNISON are urging members to accept the proposals as it is believed, it is a better deal than would be achieved through the pay review body.

It is a delicate balance with negotiations for UNISON to get what they want for it’s members as well as the combined demands of employers,  the Government and other UNIONS.

If members accept the proposals they will see the money in their pay packets in July. If the offer is rejected the unions will have to wait for the Pay review body and the Government to recommend and implement a pay award. It is anticipated the current offer would be off the table if rejected.

The Question for us as members, is do we accept the current offer or risk an offer that may be worse and the prospect of  industrial action. The Ballot closes at 5pm on the 5th June, have your say!
