Unite which represents workers in every pay band across the entire NHS structure, stated it recognises, while this offer will put money into the pockets of its members, any monthly pay uplift will vary considerably between individuals.
For this reason the union is putting this offer before its members without any recommendation.James O’Connell, Unite regional officer, said: “Workers across the NHS have been described as ‘heroic’ in what has been an exceptionally challenging year. Now is the time to reward those workers with the pay uplift they deserve, not just for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic, but also for the pay cuts they have endured through years of austerity.
“This offer will be put to Unite members in the coming weeks. It is down to them how they respond to this offer. Is it enough? That is for them to decide. For Unite, other pay potential remains on the table in the form of additional Barnett Consequentials and we will pursue any additional pay that is intended for our members through further negotiation with any future Scottish Government.
