Nurses reject States’ imposed pay deal

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.
