Nurses reject States' imposed pay deal

News | Published:

THE majority of Jersey's nurses have rejected a controversial pay deal imposed by the States negotiating body.

The States Employment Board sparked anger among most public sector unions earlier this month when it broke off talks and enforced a three-year pay deal.

And although nurses were given a slightly better deal than other States workers, members of the two biggest nurses' unions – the Royal College of Nursing and the Jersey Nursing Association – this week unanimously rejected the offer.

Members of the Royal College of Midwives are understood to still be considering the deal.
