Unite will be balloting all members who work in the NHS in Wales on proposed changes to the Agenda forChange terms and conditions. Unite says that the changes may cause our members financial hardship without even addressing the financial problems that the NHS in Wales in facing.
The changes to sick pay and incremental progression are identical to changes that were made in England in 2013. Unite opposed these changes in England and we are doing the same in Wales. All of these changes could be financially detrimental to our members and Unite has set out a number of proposals which better addresses the financial situation in the NHS in Wales. Unite also believes that as a matter of principle we should oppose detrimental changes to our members terms and conditions.

You can also download a workplace poster. If you're a Unite member working in the NHS in Wales you can get a copy of the letter sent to members here.
