Society issues detailed NHS Pay 2018 information to members

Published: 10 April 2018 Ezine

The SoR's trade union and industrial relations (TUIR) team has released detailed background information about the government’s three-year pay offer.

A supplement has been sent to all Society members with the April issues of Synergy News and Imaging & Therapy Practice. The information is also available on the website

“We want members to be as well informed as possible about the pay offer before we and the other NHS health unions consult with them in May,” Paul Moloney, the Society’s industrial relations manager said.

“As well as the proposed increases to basic pay which members can check based on their band and point on the pay spine, there are other elements of the proposal to be considered such as reforms to the pay bands, pay progression and increasing capacity in the NHS. It is important that everyone has a clear understanding of what the offer means to them,” Paul continued.

“It is also important to understand the context and background to the offer. Why we have got to where we are now in talks with the government.

“The TUIR team are encouraging regions and countries to speak to their national/regional officer to arrange meetings of reps at which the pay offer can be discussed in full so that workplace discussions with members can take place.”

The Society's Annual Delegates Conference passed a motion calling for UK Council to campaign for a 'yes' vote during the consultation phase.

Much of the information has been developed jointly with the other unions to ensure staff across the NHS are getting the same information.
