Campaign for fair pay at the Care Plus Group

As part of our campaign we are continuing to put pressure on both Care Plus Group (CPG) and the Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB). We are calling on CPG and the ICB to:

  • Meet to discuss on-going strike action by nursing staff.
  • Urgently discuss how to resolve the current pay dispute.
  • Work to ensure that nursing staff employed by CPG are paid the same as their NHS colleagues on Agenda for Change pay rates. 

Please show your support for RCN members at CPG by signing our petition TODAY. Click here to sign.

Industrial strike action

RCN Yorkshire and the Humber is campaigning for a meaningful pay award for staff employed by CPG. CPG is a social enterprise organisation providing adult health and social care services to the NHS but employs its staff outside of NHS Agenda for Change terms and conditions. The RCN is calling for parity with NHS employers.

The RCN balloted members employed by CPG in July on whether they would be willing to take industrial strike action for better pay and parity with nursing staff employed by the NHS on Agenda for Change terms and conditions of employment.

The postal ballot, which was conducted by an independent scrutineer, closed on 25 July 2023. A majority of RCN members who responded to the ballot voted in favour of strike action with 93% of those who voted, voting ‘yes’. Read more here.

RCN members employed by CPG took strike action on 25 August, 8 September, and again on 26 and 27 October 2023. RCN members also held a march around Grimsby town centre. Read more here.
