College starts pay consultation

  • Comment
The RCN has opened its consultation on the proposed 8% three-year pay offer. Members can register their views through the RCN’s regional branch network and via its website until 28 May.

College leaders are recommending that members accept the proposals (NT News, 15 April, p8). RCN general secretary Peter Carter said: ‘Given the challenging
economic climate and the government’s tough public sector pay policy, this deal is a fair and balanced one.

‘Not only does it offer nurses a degree of security over their household finances in the coming years, we have won a firm commitment from the government to re-open pay talks should inflation rise sharply or if there are significant changes in the labour market.’

Unison is due to ballot members on the offer in May, and Unite/Amicus’ health sector committee plans to meet this week to discuss the proposals.
