We need you to vote on the pay offer for 2017 and 2018 for Agenda for Change staff employed by Health and Social Services.
It is important that you read all of the information.
We know that you have been without a pay award for some time. It has taken months for us to be able to negotiate a package that we feel we can put to members. Whilst this offer isn’t perfect, it is a significant move in the right direction and will overall provide you with an increase in pay over 2017 and 2018 which is above the predicted level of RPI. Crucially, the States have also agreed to a complete review of the nursing pay system. This is something that RCN members have been raising as vital to addressing the imbalance between the value of nursing roles in comparison to other public sector/civil service roles in the States.
As your negotiators, we believe that this is the best we are going to achieve through negotiation and need you to have your say.
We are asking you to accept or reject the following offer which covers last years and this year’s increases:
- A lump sum payment (not consolidated into basic pay) for the pay period 1 April 2017 – 31 March 2018. The lump sum payment will be equivalent to at least 2.5% of the top point of each band rounded up to the nearest £50. See below for amounts each band will get. This payment is subject to usual deductions.
- 4.25% increase in your basic pay from 1 April 2018 – 31 December 2018.
The lump sum payments per band are as follows:
|Pay Band||Lump Sum|
This offer results in your pay increasing above the RPI rate over the two years.
The complete review of the pay system for 2019 and beyond will also follow. We believe that this review will allow us to eliminate some of the quirks of the current system, be much more transparent and fair to all and result in pay increases for all. We will be asking for your thoughts on this later in the year.
We would like you to vote on this offer by following this link: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/WRVXU/
The vote will be open until 11pm 3 June 2018.
