RCN has been Accused by NHS Unions of Breaching Coalition

It would seem that over 13 unions have come out to say that they are greatly disappointed in the RCN. This includes those who have come up through a nurse agency as well as those who work in a nursing recruitment agency. That’s not all though, those who are seeking care jobs and carers careers have also come out to say that they are not at all happy with how things are going. The unions have expressed their thoughts, saying that the RCN agreed to a formal vote to see if it would be possible to get a formal vote to try and sign up with the UK-wide position. This would apply to the 2022 and 2023 position for the pay round. The RCN have unfortunately gone and breached this agreement by saying that they are going to be changing their position. For a lot of people, this is simply not acceptable.

The RCN and the various other unions have submitted a lot of evidence to show that they have gone against their word and they have also outlined calls for the retention package for any members. They want to try and outline the fact that what they did was wrong and that they would not put a number on the size of pay raise that they were anticipating. They have said that it has to be inflation boosting and that it has to also absorb any increases to the NHS pension contributions that are being made. Some staff will have their real living wage impacted as well and this is not good to say the least. The RCN have submitted some evidence that shows that they have complied with the PRB but not everyone is supportive of this movement.
