UNISON, the UK’s biggest public sector trade union with more than 1.3 million members, is calling on all healthcare workers, including nurses, paramedics, porters, cleaners, cooks, therapists and healthcare assistants to hold official protests on Thursday June 5 as part of their campaign for fair pay in the NHS.

The protests will take place outside hospitals and other workplaces around the country over an offer that denies 60 per cent of NHS workers a pay rise. A massive 70 per cent of nurses will not get a pay rise.

In calling the day of action, UNISON has condemned the Government’s decision to give a derisory one per cent non-consolidated increase only to NHS staff at the top of their pay scale.
