In partnership with the other health trade unions in Northern Ireland, this was put to the Department of Health and HSC employers in a formal proposal on 26 September 2018.

If implemented it will ensure that staff here, like colleagues in England, Scotland and Wales, will be paid the national living wage.  Morally and ethically this is the right thing to do for low-paid workers. Whilst the Department’s pay offer proposes some improvements in pay, a significant number of staff will only receive a 1.5% pay rise which is below the rate of inflation.
