RepsDirect No 766 - 30 May 2008

Head of Health, Kevin Coyne General Secretary, Derek Simpson

NHS 3 year pay offer: Members Ballot

Dear Colleagues

The Health Sector National Committee met yesterday to discuss the current position on the 3 year pay offer. It was unanimously agreed to reject the pay offer and, in light of the continuing refusal by the Secretary of State for Health to reopen pay negotiations, to ballot our members with a recommendation to reject the offer. The ballot commences forthwith and closes on 11th June. All reps are urged to encourage members to vote and to vote "No" in the ballot. I attach a copy of the letter which will accompany the ballot and the details of the pay offer negotiated by Unison and the RCN. A pay ballot poster will be available shortly on the union's website and reps are asked to print this and display at their workplaces.

Kevin Coyne
Head of Health
