NHS trust bosses are demanding much lower national pay levels if they are to continue using the Agenda for Change framework for pay bargaining.

So they’re offering workers the “choice” of pay being slashed nationally, or imposed local level pay cuts. Bosses want to “re-profile” pay bands to downgrade jobs.

Pay increments are under threat. And unsocial hours and on‑call payments will be taken away if workers are off sick.

This shows that if they win on pensions, the bosses and Tories gain confidence to attack us on pay.
