UK Council are recommending that SoR members accept the proposals.
The SoR believes that this proposal secures over the three years pay rises above inflation, as predicted by the Office for Budget Responsibility. If the economic situation changes significantly, the unions will be able to go and make a case to the Pay Review Body for additional awards to ensure that NHS pay doesn’t start falling behind again.
The offer also meets a number of key policy objectives which were called for by Annual Delegate Conferences of the Society over the years.
We will be talking to you about these reforms to help you understand exactly what they mean. We are encouraging you to discuss the changes with colleagues and meet in your workplace.
UK Council will table an emergency motion at the Annual Delegates Conference later this month, where the pay offer will be debated.
Much of the information has been developed jointly with the other unions to ensure staff across the NHS are getting the same information.
