Manx Care nurses agree pay offer

15 Feb 2024

Royal College of Nursing (RCN) members on the Isle of Man have voted to accept a 6% pay offer for 23/24 from employer Manx Care.

The RCN, which is the Isle of Man’s largest nursing trade union, surveyed its members from midday on Wednesday 31 January to 12 noon on Wednesday 14 February 2024 on their pay offer which dates back to last April 2023. 


Of those who voted 75% of members chose to accept pay offer, with 25% voting to reject.  
Estephanie Dunn, Regional Director for the RCN in the North West, said: “Thank you to those members who took the time to vote, it’s really important that we have a strong voice so that our response is clear to the employer.   
“I am pleased that we have reached a resolution quickly to this offer however, we now await the results of the other union surveys to see if the majority has accepted.  We now must see our members receive this pay rise as soon as possible,” 
The RCN is still concerned that the offer does not necessarily include back-pay for those who have already left Manx Care in the months since the offer should have been implemented.   
Ms Dunn continued: “For those who have left Manx Care’s employment between April 2023 and now, we encourage them to submit an appeal to Manx Care so that they can be considered for back-pay for the time they worked there.  They have worked the hours and deserve to be paid at the full rate they should have been paid anyway, plus any pension contributions, had this offer been received and accepted before the pay year commenced.” 
Following a challenge on the decision by the islands joint trade unions, Manx Care set up an appeals process where individual cases were considered however, staff must have ‘maintained a link with the trust’ such as bank work, to be eligible. 
A pay offer will be implemented once all the unions have reported back their results and if the majority have also accepted.
