Almost 300 Nurse Assistants, HCSW and other Band 2 nurses have responded to the UNISON campaign to maximise their pay which was launched on International Nurses Day.
The campaign seeks to encourage UNISON members to evaluate the key roles and tasks in the job to help them determine whether they do ‘personal care’ or ‘clinical care’. Members involved in clinical roles MAY have a legitimate claim for a Band 3.
Cathy Miller said, “UNISON has already pursued a number of claims for Band 2 nursing staff, so we know that many of them are working above the Band 2 profile. The response so far has been terrific and we won’t rest until we are confident that every UNISON Band 2 Nurse has the information they need.”
Following up on the activity so far, the union will lodge initial claims for 280 members, with new enquiries coming in everyday.
If you are a Band 2 NA and you do much more than ‘personal care’ get in touch with UNISON on [email protected] or 0141 331 4450 for more info.
