NHS workers deserve a pay rise now

Our amazing NHS staff deserve a proper pay boost now.

The government’s insulting recommendation of a one per cent pay rise for NHS workers, who are exhausted after a year of tireless caring for patients during the pandemic, is unacceptable and may be the last straw for many employees.

A decent deal for NHS staff is fair, necessary and affordable. We're calling on the British public to speak up now for the NHS put pressure on decision makers to approve additional investment in health services and funding for a significant pay rise. If we stand #WithNHSStaff, we can tell the government to think again.

Help NHS workers get the pay rise they deserve

Do put them up in your workplace or even your front window at home. Reps can download them and order them for print from the Unite publications library https://print.unitetheunion.org/ 

Email your MP – use the form below – ask them to write to the chancellor and prime minister today urging them to give NHS workers the significant decent wage increase all NHS workers deserve, not the derisory 1% pay cap they have submitted to the NHS pay review body.

It’s time Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak stopped clapping and started paying.

With the NHS three-year pay deal nearing its end, Unite is working together with our sister health unions to put pressure on the government to provide the funding for a fair and early pay rise for all NHS staff– including the many domestics, catering workers, security guards and other support staff working for outsourced companies.

The joint unions, including Unite, the Royal College of Nursing, the Royal College of Midwives, GMB, UNISON and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy have written to the prime minister and the chancellor calling for ‘pay talks to start soon so that you and your colleagues get a pay boost before the end of the year.’ You’ll keep you posted.

Please take a minute to write to your MP. Tell them what’s it’s been like to work during the worse health crisis in modern times and how you feel about not getting the pay rise recognition, despite all you and your colleagues have done. Demand that they support our calls for pay talks to start soon.

‘Shocked to the core’ and ‘disgusted’ is how one Unite member described learning that she and her colleagues were not part of the government’s public sector pay rise plans. How do you feel?

Your personal experiences are powerful, make sure to use them when writing to your MP.

Say it loud, say it clear, NHS workers deserve a £3000 or 15% pay rise now!

Unite the Union has produced a series of memes for social media for members and supports to post share and like. This accompanies our campaign asking for an early and significant pay rise for NHS staff of either £3000 or 15%, whatever is the greater.   

Do share these memes on your social media platforms and among your networks and inside and outside our union. 

Below are some suggested posts that you could use and customise to reflect where you live or work or what role you perform in the NHS. It is also important to ask your friends and family who do not work in the NHS to share these memes so they could spread the message and start the discussion.

Many thanks for your support and do give us your feedback:
