The government has announced that around 60 percent of NHS workers will be offered a measly 1 percent pay rise.
They include nurses and paramedics who earn just over £21,000.
They also include health care assistants, porters and maintenance staff who earn less than £15,000.
The below-inflation rise follows a two-year pay freeze.
The Unison and Unite unions have condemned the rise.
But neither has committed to fighting to improve it.
Instead, Unite has said it will campaign for a higher pay award for 2014-15.
