Following a consultation, the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has today announced that the vast majority of its members believe that the 3% pay rise is unacceptable.
Plaid Cymru’s spokesperson for Health, Rhun ap Iorwerth MS said,
“Truly valuing the skills and commitment of the workforce has never been as important, and today’s overwhelming rejection of the 3% pay rise is very significant from the RCN.
“In the meantime, I am still waiting for a response to my question of whether all NHS staff in Wales would receive a 3% pay rise at all. I urge the Health Minister to address all these concerns immediately.”
