NHS pay placard

Nurses United, an activist group within the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), is campaigning for rejection of the 4% pay offer made to NHS workers in Scotland. Like the NHS Workers Say No group, it is campaigning for a 15% rise.

The GMB union is balloting in Scotland between 12 April and 5 May, Unison between 15 April and 7 May, and the RCN between 16 April and 6 May. Unison has called on members to accept the 4%, GMB and RCN to reject. The Royal College of Midwives and Unite are putting the deal to their members with no recommendation.

NHS workers have suffered real-terms pay cuts of up to 20% since 2010, and the NHS is understaffed by around 100,000. A meagre 4% being accepted in Scotland will knock a hole in the organising to change those conditions which currently aims for a next day of action on 12 May.
