Say No To Pay Cut For Nurses!

Recommended Posts

"Say no to pay cut for nurses!

Send Chancellor Gordon Brown a postcard.

The RCN wants members to put pressure on the government before the NHS pay review body (PRB) recommendations in february. Members are being urged to send postcards to Chancellor Gordon Brown saying 'No to a pay cut for nurses'.

On 23 novermber Mr Brown said the 2006 pay award for nurses and other public sector workers should be based on the 2 per cent inflation target. The RCN does not believe that 2 per cent is enough to cover the cost of living rises and so, in effect, represents a pay cut. The recommendation also flies in the face of eveidence submitted to the PRBby the RCN along with 14 other NHS staff-side representative groups, which called for a substantial pay increase for 2006 to help with recuitment and retnetion and to close the gap with other public sector workers.

Get your postcard by calling RCN Direct on 08457726100, or send and e-card to the Chancellor by going to the RCN website at www.rcn.org.uk/pay2006."

2 per cent inflation? I know this seems off topic but I feel it relates by the fact a 2% rise does not cover the increase in cost of housing. Anyhow, if anyone feels like sending a card, please do!

Few of the nurses coming into the profession originate from the UK and the money they get to take back home will keep them very well indeed. Apparently nursing is yet another job that few British workers want to do.

We pay for a 1st world service and put up with a 3rd world service as all the pen pushers get richer. Note I’m not saying nurses don’t work hard but that’s the same as many other jobs people do to earn a living.

Others are getting a 2% pay cut but are not organised like the nurses to complain.

Do you think the Police we be getting more than 2% pay rise so they can empty the speed cameras faster ?
