Unison reopens nurse pay talks

31st July 2008

Health service union Unison is to reopen pay negotiations with the government because of increases to the cost of living.

RCN and Unison members voted to support the three-year pay deal in June but because inflation is now beyond the 2% level of when it made the deal, it has triggered a clause to re-open negotiations. The move will not affect the 2.75% increase agreed for 2008/9 but Unison, with other health unions, will ask that the pay increase for 2009/10 is reviewed in light of rising inflation.
