Government under attack over pay freeze

23rd March 2011

Health union Unison has criticised the government after it was confirmed that the pay of more than a million health workers will be frozen for two years.

Unison said the announcement was a bitter blow for NHS staff who were already facing increased pension contributions. The government said it had accepted the recommendations of Pay Review Bodies for public sector pay awards for 2011-12 where public sector workers earning £21,000 or less will receive a pay increase of £250 for 2011-12, while those earning over £21,000 will have their pay frozen for two years.
