NIPSA members across Health and Social Care (HSC) will be aware that the Government has offered 3% to NHS staff in England. 3% does not come near the expectations of NIPSA members in NI, however at this time no offer has been made here.
NIPSA along with the other Health Trade Unions will be meeting the Health Minister in the coming weeks to gauge what offer the NI Executive intend to make to our members in NI. We will make our position known on the pay rise our members expect and deserve. Pay is a devolved matter in NI.
When an offer is received, NIPSA will consult with our members to ensure that you have your say on this important matter and any campaign that is likely to follow.
It remains NIPSA’s intention to work collaboratively with the other Health Unions to demand fair pay for members and we will issue further information updating members as soon as possible.
