Health unions, including the CSP, have agreed to accept a three-year pay offer for NHS staff in Scotland following extensive consultation with members.
CSP members voted overwhelmingly in favour of the proposals in an online survey, backed up by feedback from 28 workplace meetings across all Health Boards and run by CSP staff speaking directly to over 500 members.
Around 37 per cent of eligible members voted in the survey, with just over 96 per cent backing the proposals.
Based on this mandate, the CSP Council’s pay working group endorsed acceptance of the pay offer.
Claire Sullivan, director of employment relations and union services, said:
‘This deal will deliver an increase at the top of the bands by 9% over the three years, along with reform to the structure leading to higher starting salaries and faster progress to the top of the band for most staff.
‘It gives NHS staff in Scotland long overdue recognition of the enormous contribution they have made in recent years under huge pressure.
‘There is still work to do to recover the loss from a decade of pay restraint, but for now we thank members for engaging with us and having their say in this extensive consultation.’
