GMB submits NHS Pay Claim to Government

Published 16th February 2024 by GMB EMAS

GMB is not engaging with the NHS Pay Review Body process until significant reform has been undertaken and GMB members in the NHS and ambulance services can be confident that the process is truly independent.

Following extensive consultations with GMB members, GMB have submitted the following pay claim to Government and asked for pay negotiations.

  • £1.50 per hour consolidated increase for all staff on Agenda for Change contracts (or RPI, whichever is greater)
  • Restorative Pay: A commitment to restore lost earnings and conditions and a plan on how this will be achieved.
  • Measures to ensure the NHS never falls below the Foundation Living Wage.
  • Unsocial Hours Enhancements: All changes made under the 2018 pay settlement are reversed, including the application of Annex 5 for all ambulance service workers.
  • Ambulance Retirement Age: An urgent review into the retirement age of ambulance service workers with a view to lowering the retirement age to 60, in line with other emergency service workers.
  • Free NHS Car Parking: Restore funding for NHS trusts to provide parking at no cost for NHS workers.
  • Immediate action to rectify Job Evaluation and Equal Pay issues.
  • Safe Staffing Levels.
