Control of nurses’ pay handed to employers


Don't want to be a knee jerk carpist, but I see a) wages and benefits dropping b) educational investments and standards dropping. I hardly a great fan of the last government, but at least they invested in nurse education and made some headway in the appalling career development that existed before. Unless the RCN and Unison come out fighting we going to get screwed. Actually forget the last sentence, we've got to come out fighting. Are you going to be happy that your colleagues are on different - read poorer - contracted rates than you are? It will mean less movement in an already almost stagnant workforce where people are afraid of leaving a job, because the promotion will mean loosing benefits such as pensions.
