In this video Lilian Macer UNISON Scotland convener and Tam Waterson Chair of the Scottish Health Committee explain why we now want to negotiate on pay direct with the Scottish Government and not the UK NHS Pay Review Board. UNISON, Scotland’s biggest health union, is calling on the Scottish Government to set up formal structures to negotiate direct with NHS unions in Scotland, and officially leave the UK’s NHS Pay Review Body.
This call came after NHS members voted to accept a new three year pay deal direct with the Scottish Government on 17 August 2018. This was after years of being given 1% pay rises from through UK’s NHS Pay Review Body. This was the first year UNISON Scotland had negotiated directly with Scottish Government.
