Become a Pay Champion

Help us reach all NHS members

RCN members have voted at Congress to begin a summer of planned protests, in response to the continuing cap on nursing pay.

This comes after a poll of members working in the NHS, in which 91% of respondents said they’d take industrial action short of a strike.

78% of members who completed the poll said they were prepared to go on strike.

This is a clear message that the Government’s policy on pay is not acceptable.

Now we need your help to build engagement with other members in your area, to give us a mandate to ballot. 

If the next Government do not scrap the pay cap, we'll make a decision about timing on a ballot. 

Pledge to become a pay champion

Almost 50,000 of you are ready to be mobilised - and with your help, we can reach all our NHS members.
