The NIPSA Health Central Panel met yesterday to consider the results of the Pay Ballot consultation process across our HSC Branches. The overall result is as follows:

80% voted to Reject

20% voted to Accept

Whilst the majority of our members have voted to reject the Pay Offer, you will be aware that the Employer issued notice last week to inform all staff that the majority of Trade Unions have now signed up to the deal and monies owed will be paid to all staff in March 2020 salaries.

That was disappointing for NIPSA as we had not completed our democratic Consultation Process. It is our view, for now, NIPSA solely cannot continue to campaign on Pay, particularly as the pay agreement will now be implemented from this month.

We thank all of our members for their support in the Pay element of our campaign to date and the Safe Staffing dispute continues and more information on that will follow. Please contact your Branch Secretary with any queries that you have in relation to this bulletin.
