Unions unimpressed by 3% pay offer for NHS workers

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Unions unimpressed by 3% pay offer for NHS workers” – below is their description.

A 3% pay rise from the government to NHS workers in England has been heavily criticised as ‘paltry’, ‘appalling’ and ‘shambolic’ by union leaders.

Those receiving the increase, which is backdated to April 2021, include nurses, paramedics, consultants, dentists and salaried GPs.

The government says that for the average nurse, this will mean an additional £1,000 a year – and the extra sum is expected to equate to around £540 for cleaners and porters.
