Nurses are Going to be Worse-Off by Thousands, the Union have Warned

If you work in a nurse agency or if you have plans to try and apply to a nursing recruitment agency then you should know that there is going to be a huge cost of living crisis. This is going to impact everyone from carers to those who may be seeking care jobs right now. Of course, a lot of unions have chosen to reiterate their calls to see if it is possible to get an above-inflation rise for any NHS staff who may be working. A brand-new analysis has been launched and they have found that the 3% payment settlement is just not enough. Unions have also said that the real data shows that nurses are down £5,200 when you compare things to 2010 and this is after a standstill of wages.

The body which actually represents trade unions across England and Wales have warned that if the government does decide to go ahead with the pay deal then this would mean that inflation is going to have an even more dramatic effect. It may even mean that nurses are going to be £1,600 worse off this year and this is not good to say the least. The TUC have since warned that for decent pay rises to happen, it is important for those who work in public services to have their cost-of-living earnings matched and that a lot of this has been overlooked, purely because of wage freezes. Frances O’Grady who is the secretary for TUC has come out to say that all of the key workers who are part of the NHS have all helped to get the country through the pandemic but right now a lot of people are at breaking point and some are struggling to get food on the table as well.
