For attention of all HCA Band 2s/3s
All the forms should have now be completed and with payroll by the 6th of March, so those who qualify will see this increase on their next wage. Please contact the office on 01382 225491 if this is not on your next wage slip.
Staff that have been advised that your Charge Nurse does NOT feel that you automatically qualify for the increase in Grade to Band 3 should be invited to an appeal meeting where you should take an accompanying rep. Please call us on 01382 225491 to arrange that.
Staff that are deemed to be on the border of the grade 2/3 will receive training to achieve the grade.
In regards to the backdating of these payments, if we have not had a response and assurances that these will be paid, along with a timetable, we will be seeking legal advice, whilst also pursuing this through consultation with you, our members and what you are prepared to about this. It is simply unacceptable that NHS Tayside believed at all that they could pay one group of workers and not another. GMB are sure that you as our members would agree.
If you would like to get involved in this campaign, please call us on the number above. You are the Union and have the strength to demand what’s fair, together.
