A decision has been taken to pay Health Workers a 1% pay award, this is an absolute insult and will infuriate NIPSA members and all Health Workers who deserve a decent pay rise. The NIPSA claim is for 15% or £3,000, whichever is higher. It is clear that a political decision has been taken that workers are expected to pay the price of the Covid pandemic and this is an attack that must be resisted.
NIPSA will engage with the other Health Unions to discuss how we maximize a unified approach to ensure that we fight for decent pay.
