Take part in new pay and conditions survey.


Unite, along with other unions including the RCN, RCM and Unison, is conducting a new survey to ask staff about their pay and working conditions, during a time when inflation is at 4.4% and cuts to public expenditure could impact on public sector staff pay. In an e-bulletin to activists, Unite national officer Karen Reay stated: 'For this survey to carry weight, we need as many people as possible to complete it--a strong survey, clearly giving the views of NHS staff on pay, workload, morale and training, will be of assistance in not only putting forward the strongest possible evidence to the NHS Pay Review Body, but in campaigning politically for a fair pay increase to be implemented.'
