Trusts say they want to 'reform' not replace Agenda for Change


When Labour introduced its Agenda for Change grading and pay system it was always the intention to remove enhanced payments for staff - that's why there was an uplift in everyone's basic pay. As someone who voted to reject AfC and to retain the Whitley Council I was in the minority- as most of my colleagues were too focused on what they were going to spend their extra money and backdated pay on to see AfC what it really is - but we are where we are. Like most people reading this, the amount of Sh!t and stress that one has to put up with seems to increase as each day passes and if enhancements do go, then so do I as I'm not prepared to work without proper recompense - and that's what enhanced payments are: compensation for wrecking your body and social life brought about by working nights/weekends.
