United Kingdom - First pay rise for health care workers since 2010 - March 31, 2018

Eight years after their last meaningful pay rise, over one million nurses, paramedics, emergency call handlers, hospital porters, scientist and other workers have been offered salary increases of 6.5% to 29% over the next three years, starting as soon as July 2018. If the workers back the deal in forthcoming ballots organised by the 14 unions by which they are represented, all workers receive at least a 6.5% salary increase. The unions will consult members for their views until the end of May and announce the outcome of that by 8 June. If the unions agree then staff will start to receive their rise in July, backdated to April 2018.
