Unite, which represents 12,000 people who work in the NHS, including members of the CPHVA, said the deal was ‘not sufficient'.
Unite officer Peter Allenson said the re-negotiation clause, which would come into effect if inflation were to rise more sharply than expected, was ‘not strong enough'.
‘In a climate of economic insecurity, it is not at a level sufficient to meet our members' needs,' he said.
The three-year pay offer has split the unions.
The RCN and Unison, who were involved with drawing up the proposals, support the deal, while the Royal College of Midwives, the GMB and Unite are recommending their members reject it.
