Unison to present pay deal evidence

Unison is expected to submit its evidence to the independent pay review body asking that the nurse pay increase for 2009/10 is reviewed in light of rising inflation on Monday.

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) and Unison members voted to support the original three-year pay deal in June.

However, in July Unison said that inflation was beyond the 2% assumption made at the time it negotiated the deal.

Re-opening the deal will have no effect on the 2.75% increase agreed for 2008/9.

Check out Healthcare Republic News on Monday morning for the first detail of the evidence submitted.
