Nurse and midwife strike action suspended after new pay offer


We had a 1% non-consolidated pay rise last year, due another 1% on top this year (from April 2015). Does this mean, if accepted, next year we will go back down to 1%? The only difference is this will be consolidated i.e. pensionable pay and the 1% will be added to the pay scale. I don't see how this is much of a victory, other than it being consolidated. Am I missing something here?
