Pay Award is Going to be Focused on Guernsey Nurses

A backdated pay increase of over 10% for nurses who work on the island of Guernsey has been imposed. This is of specialist interest to those who are part of a nursing recruitment agency or even a nurse agency. The negotiations have been put on hold as the result of the coronavirus. The State of Guernsey Policy has implemented the recent offer that was made for the Agenda For Change. The award includes a 5% pay increase which is going to be effective from January. Another 5% increase is going to be put in place from September 2019. This ultimately means that staff who are under the scheme are going to be seeing their salaries increase by over 10%.

The P&R have stated that the negotiations for the year 2020 and even the future years as well are going to be taken into consideration. These are being paused given the unquantified demands of public funding and the enormity of the potential. Unions have expressed their disappointment on the situation, and they have also agreed to stop any industrial action from taking place. This is especially the case given the fact that the Covid crisis is still happening. Leaders of the Royal College of Nursing have released a statement and they have warned that the pay dispute is not in fact over yet. They have said that they recognise the fact that the Covid-19 crisis is putting a lot of pressure on things like public finances and that this is happening more than ever before. That being said, withholding money will not help at all. The pay gap remains but in this day and age, staff are now feeling way more valued than ever. This is not good to say the least, but it looks like more can be done right now.
