cost of living

With high inflation, many CSP members will be worrying about the cost of living.

Your CSP membership helps us to represent you, whether that’s securing fair pay and conditions at work, better fees if you are self-employed, or funding while you study. You also get access to a range of benefits and advice to help you through a crisis and to save money #CSP4FairPay.

Our collective strength as a trade union means we can challenge the real-terms pay cuts that most members are facing. By acting together, we’re able to press for levels of pay that members deserve. With NHS pay levels setting a reference for most non-NHS pay, our influencing and campaigning carried out jointly with other unions affects the pay of physio staff wherever they work. 

As we prepare industrial action ballots for eligible members in the NHS, be ready to stand with your colleagues and vote for fair pay

Achieving equal pay in your workplace toolkit 

The CSP have worked with The Equality Trust, trade unions, academics and human resources professionals to create The Equality Trust’s Toolkit for Achieving Equal Pay in your Workplace. 

This toolkit has been created to help employees, workers and union representatives to address unequal pay in their workplaces through examining the policies and practices in a workplace that lead to this inequality.
