Though the UNISON articles has “planned pay cut”, it has actually now been implemented. Since April they have had a 9.5% pay cut. This comes on top of a major restructuring with around 30 volunteering for redundancy and cuts to all shift allowances for our colleagues working 24hr/7.

24th 25th 26th June (2 of these days)

1st 2nd 3rd July (all 3 of these days)
