UNISON response to improved NHS Wales pay offer

UNISON’s head of health, Hugh McDyer

Wales’ biggest health union has responded to Welsh government’s improved pay offer for all NHS Wales staff.

Hugh McDyer, UNISON Cymru Wales head of health said,

“We are pleased intensive discussion between the trade unions and Welsh government has resulted in an improved offer.

“The new offer contains an element that will be consolidated into healthcare workers’ pay, which is what UNISON has argued for throughout negotiations.

“UNISON’s healthcare committee will now meet early next week to discuss the offer in more detail. UNISON will continue discussions with Welsh ministers on the further improvements to employment conditions. We are absolutely determined to get the best possible deal for our nurses, midwives, healthcare assistants, paramedics, cleaners, porters, catering staff, admin staff and many more.

“After the way they worked throughout the pandemic and how they respond magnificently in a daily challenging situation, it is the least they deserve.”
