UNISON pay consultation: a reminder for Branch Officials


  • ·         Please make sure members know that once again, as we do most years, UNISON is seeking its members views on the pay award set by the NHS Pay Review Body
  • ·         We launched our consultation on how to respond to the NHS pay award on 31 March - Branches should respond by Tuesday 2 May
  • ·         It is vital we get the views of our branches and our members


Actions for branches:

  • ·         Consult on our pay strategy  as set out in the previous email
  • ·         Respond to UNISON Health Group as soon as possible, deadline Tuesday 2 May – forms to be sent to


I realise this is really busy time, not least with Health Conference  next week but hope you will be able to consult with members and feed back to us. You have until Tuesday 2 May to respond to the consultation on how UNISON should act on NHS pay.


In recent years UNISON has often been the only union to conduct a consultation in response to a pay award. It is still the case that the majority of other unions have taken no action. However, this year the RCN has followed our lead and is currently conducting a survey on how their members feel about pay.
