Responding to the RCN’s letter to its members on Agenda For Change, Danny Mortimer, chief executive of NHS Employers, said:
“The letter states that the RCN has in error told members in one of its documents that they would all receive “a 3 per cent uplift this summer”.
“The framework agreement, which is the document agreed by the NHS Staff Council that the RCN consulted its members on, does not make this claim.
“This miscommunication is very unfortunate and clearly the RCN will need to review all of its communications to understand the extent of its error.
“We hope that this issue between the RCN and its membership can be resolved quickly, and we would direct colleagues towards the information on our website which makes clear the pay journeys for different staff over the next three years.”
