RCN Members have Said that the 3% deal is Unacceptable

A huge majority of the nursing members in England have come out to say that the latest pay announcement is simply unacceptable and that the results from the consultation have now been revealed. It would seem that 92% of members who voted in England were against the pay award and that 94% of people felt the same way in Wales. The members expect to see action from the government and they want to see nurses paid a very fair rate. The RCN have said that the profession had held a very clear verdict and once again they are doing what they can to get the government to think about the deal that they have put out there. They do not believe that it is fair to anyone who works in private nursing, in a nursing agency or even those who are signed up with a nursing recruitment agency. In Northern Ireland, it looks like the nurses will be on course for a very small wage increase but the government have said that it would not be possible to make a formal announcement on this until October. They are going to have to do a budget review to find out where they are going to go from here. They have said that a deal has been struck in Scotland and that people are going to be eligible 4% pay uplift.

The offers came in for way less than what was campaigned for. The RCN want to see a pay rise of 12.5% and they also want to see nurses being treat more fairly as well. Of course, when you look at England, you will see that 25.4% of people who were eligible voted and that over 90% of them felt as though the deal was not acceptable at all. The remaining amount thought that it was acceptable given the circumstances.
