NHS Pay Offer 2018 – Consultation Ballot & Membership Meetings

This week saw the launch of our 2018 NHS Pay Offer Consultation Ballot. Members will now start to receive emails, texts or letters, inviting them to either accept or reject the 3 year deal currently on the table.

As a branch we are not making a recommendation on the offer because of the complexity of the deal. For some of our members there is no doubt that this offer deals with longstanding low-pay issues, and it is for that reason that it is being approved for consultative ballot. However for others it fails to address health wage packets falling behind inflation levels.

We strongly recommend that all members whose pay is governed by NHS Agenda for Change terms and conditions familiarise themselves with the content of the offer. Look at your pay band and ensure that when you cast your ballot the decision that you make is an informed one.

UNISON Pennine Acute Health Branch will also be holding lunchtime meetings across our four main hospital sites, where members are encouraged to attend and find out more about the pay offer. Meetings will take place as follows:-

Monday 30th April. Lecture Theatre, Post Graduate Medical Centre, North Manchester General Hospital. 1pm.

Wednesday 2nd May. Room F3, Education Centre, Royal Oldham Hospital. Two meetings, 1pm and 1.30pm.

Tuesday 8th May. Foyer, Education Centre, Fairfield General Hospital. 1pm.

Tuesday 15th May. Room D3, Level D, Rochdale Infirmary. 1pm.

In addition to these meetings we will also hold site walkabouts. If you see us, come and say hello, we are always pleased to speak to our members.

Once you feel that you have been adequately informed and have decided how you wish to vote, then this can be done via this link.

If you need to know what your UNISON membership number is (the online voting portal requires this or your NI number) then call the branch on 0161 720 2149.
