RCN to commission review into how ‘pay confusion’ occurred


So there is to be another inquiry? our fees are paying for this one assumes, what will the end result be, yes we misled our members. What will the RCN do about this farcical situation? I am a nurse, no high flyer but have learned a lot over the past 17 years nursing, still learning and good at what I do. My point is, I have been on the top pay band 5 for many years, (Along with many other nurses), we have no increment pay points, therefore no pay increase at all. We actually have in our last pay packet an increase in tax and national insurance. When queried I was informed I had gone up a level on the agenda for change pay scale, But only to be told there were two pay points the same, I was being placed on the lower one meaning there will be no pay rise for two years. However, I did get a small increase that was taken back as mentioned previously by increased tax and national insurance. This is legalised mugging by the government and the RCN cajoled with them. As you can probably tell not a very happy nurse as regards with pay!!!
