Working together for a better deal on NHS pay
After years of your pay being held back by government in the name of austerity, the NHS trade unions decided enough was enough. So, we put in a pay claim in 2017 and the government responded by agreeing to talk to us.
As a result of those negotiations we have come up with a framework agreement to put to you, as members, that we believe would benefit all NHS staff. Those benefits include a three year pay deal and changes to the pay structure to make it better and fairer. Crucially, the government has committed new money to pay for the deal – not money taken from patient care.
The NHS trade unions are ensuring that members can have their say on these proposals before anything is agreed.
