Unite members have continued to stand together to call on this government to get round the negotiating table on NHS pay. On Monday 24 November 10,000s of Unite members took part in a second day of industrial action with colleagues from the country’s leading health unions to demand fair NHS pay.
On Tuesday (2 December) health workers took their fair pay plea to the Treasury, ahead of chancellor George Osborne’s autumn statement. With the government promising an extra £2 billion to the NHS frontline and services there can be no more excuses. After so many years of real terms wage cuts, you deserve fair NHS pay now.
You’re making a difference but there’s still more to do. We need to keep the pressure on MPs and the government. With your help, we can get MPs to commit to paying you what you deserve.
Take action: Email your MP now – ask them to sign Unite’s NHS fair pay pledge. Unite has drafted a letter, all you need to do is enter your postcode and press submit.

Working to rule – starting and finishing work on time and taking your breaks is proving to be a very effective lawful industrial action short of a strike. Unite members are committed to continue their work to rule until 18 January 2015.
Thank you for all you are doing.
