NHS staff vote for 6.5% pay deal

  • Nurses have voted'overwhelmingly to accept the NHS pay deal

The RCN is now also calling for similar rises to be extended to nursing staff across the NHS and social care, including those working in general practice. The raise applies to the current financial year and NHS employers will backdate the increase to April 2018.

Nearly 40 per cent of eligible members voted in the survey, with more than 90 per cent backing the proposals.

Now, though, it's been announced that members of 13 unions have reached a deal with NHS secretary Jeremy Hunt that will see a pay rise for more than a million NHS workers. Unison is backing the pay deal after 84% of its members voted in favour (from a turnout of 30%), with Unite also giving the proposals their support after a 79% vote in favour from their NHS members (from a turnout of 27%). But this three-year pay deal must not be a one-off. The only NHS staff union to reject the deal was the GMB, who feel the deal still doesn't give NHS workers enough.

'There is much work left to do to recover what has been lost during nearly a decade of pay restraint and we will continue to make that case, as well as the broader issues on funding and workforce pressures in the NHS.

In Scotland and Wales, pay negotiations are subsequently underway but the absence of government in Northern Ireland means the increase will be delayed. This deal marks a step in the right direction but the bigger leap to truly fair pay still needs to be taken.

"Ministers knew that the public were behind our members when they turned up the heat previous year".

"But I want to reassure those members who did not support this particular deal that their views are respected and their arguments have been heard by the College".

Members of 13 unions representing hospital cleaners, nurses, security guards, physiotherapists, emergency call handlers, paramedics, midwives, radiographers and other NHS staff across England voted to accept the deal.

Unions said it meant a significant boost for the lowest-paid staff.
