Conservatives have ‘lost the argument’ on public sector pay, says UNISON

Commenting on the news that the DUP (Democratic Unionist Party) could support a Labour motion calling for an end to the public sector pay cap in the NHS, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “This is even more evidence that the Conservatives have lost the argument on public sector pay.

Pay cap forces public service staff into debt, says UNISON

  Staff providing vital public services are being forced into debt, into cutting back on groceries, having to go without heating and even a daily meal, because of the government’s pay cap, according to research by UNISON.   The findings released today (Sunday) will increase pressure on ministers to give all public service employees a proper pay rise ahead […]

Are we heading for a nurse and midwife crisis?

What is the issue?

 The real value of pay in the NHS has been falling for five years.

Agenda for Change is the name given to the new national NHS pay and terms and conditions system.

It will introduce new pay bands and harmonised terms and conditions for NHS workers.

The system has been negotiated by government health departments and UNISON, together with other health unions.

UNISON wins dental nurse fee deal

 UNISON achieved a major breakthrough in its campaign to win registration payments for all dental nurses when NHS Direct agreed to pay Band 4 dental nurses £38 towards the cost of their £96 annual registration fee to the General Dental Council.

The deal brings such nurses in line with the arrangements put in place for dental nurses on Band 5 or above through the multi-year pay deal, which was agreed following a ballot of members in 2008.

UNISON will be looking to build on this agreement with NHS Direct by pursuing payment of professional clinical registration allowances for the entire dental nurse workforce across the health service through negotiations at the NHS Staff Council.
