Nurses' wages to increase

Leading union the Royal College of Nursing tried unsuccessfully to negotiate a 5% wage increase for workers earlier this year, but talks with the Department of Health and Social Care collapsed.

Following a process of arbitration, nurses' pay will now go up by 2.5%, pending ministers' approval.It comes days after trade unions secured a similar pay increase for civil servants and manual workers.

A spokesperson for RCN says the government 'recognises the hard work of members whilst acknowledging the economic pressures on the Island'.
