Of course the figures don't add up, the devils in the detail. I am 68 and still working as a part time clinical teacher the increase is poor to say the least. I estimated aprox. 14.8% loss of earnings since the pay freeze and I am never going to make that up. So all in all poor negotiations from unions. I won't be voting acceptance but nurses will and the government will continue to reap what it has sown. This pay deal will not attract more nurses and I suspect nurses will continue to leave.
