Pay Offer Consultation closes for England

Pay Offer Consultation closes for England

Following our industrial action and long term pay campaign the Government entered into negotiations with the RCM and other NHS Trade Unions. After a week of intense and challenging talks we reached an offer that was the best offer we could achieve by negotiations and we suspended our industrial action pending consultation with you.

Since 4th February we have been consulting with RCM members in England about the pay offer and the consultation closed today (25th February). A majority of RCM members in England have voted in favour of accepting the offer.

The results are:

  • 93.9% voted in favour of accepting the offer;
  • 6.1% voted in favour of rejecting the offer;
  • 44.5% members voted in the consultation.

We are pleased that a majority of you voted in favour of accepting the offer as we believe that we negotiated a good deal in challenging circumstances that was improved significantly as a result of your industrial action and campaigning.

We will now have to wait for the results of the other NHS Trade Unions’ consultations with their members.

If you have any questions about the pay offer you can:

The following briefing documents explain the offer:
