RepsDirect No 752 - 8 April 2008

Head of Health, Kevin Coyne General Secretary, Derek Simpson

PAY in the NHS

The attached press release has been issued by the Dept of Health.

This announcement has been made without the support of Unite nor any of the other NHS unions except Unison and the RCN. I attended a special meeting of the Staff Council Executive on 4th April where we were expected to sign up to this pay agreement and I made it clear that this was not possible until our members had been consulted. Please ensure that our members in your workplace are made aware of Unite's position in this.
