31 March and 1 April saw the latest UNISON 2 Days for 2K take off across the South East, with branches and activists across the region taking the opportunity to show the government their commitment to campaigning against what would be a disastrous 1% pay award.
UNISON NHS members throughout the South East are sending a clear message to the government that they deserve a proper pay rise, a position that is overwhelmingly shared by the population of the country.
The recent award in Scotland of 4% shows that NHS pay is absolutely a political decision and this government are making clear how much they truly appreciate the NHS staff that have put their lives on the line over the past 13 months to keep this country afloat.
UNISON will continue to campaign for a minimum £2,000 pay rise for all NHS staff, and members will have more opportunities to show their dismay, disbelief, and disgust at what the government consider to be a fair pay deal.
You can see from the NHS Pay Monitor website how much NHS staff have already missed out on compared to the government implementing the UNISON recommended £2,000 increase for all staff. You can contact your MP to urge them to do all they can inside and outside of parliament to show proper appreciation of NHS staff by campaigning for a full and proper pay rise.
