Unison to ballot NHS workers over pay

Following the refusual of the government to honour the NHS pay review body’s recommendation for most staff, Unison is to ballot its members in the NHS on industrial action.

The pay review body recommended a 1% pay rise for staff – but the government has not honoured this and, instead, wants to make the 1% rise a non-consolidated one-off payment to those at the top of the pay scale – with no cost-of-living adjustment for those who are at the bottom or middle of the scale.
