Lobby of Weston Hospital Board Meeting - 4th September 7.30 to 10.30 am

North Somerset UNISON, which represents health care workers at Weston General Hospital, will be lobbying the Board Meeting of Weston Area Health Trust from 7.30 to 10.30 am on 4th September, to demonstrate their opposition to regional pay in Weston super Mare. Weston Hospital is part of a consortium of 20 South West NHS Trusts who have joined together to look at ways of reducing staff pay by up to 15% by moving away from national NHS terms and conditions to regional and local pay rates. This means that a nurse in Weston super Mare will be paid less than a nurse in Birmingham for doing exactly the same job. A move to regional pay will have a devastating effect on the local economy and on patient care across North Somerset. Later on the same day UNISON will also have a stall on Weston High Street asking members of the public if they think pay cuts for NHS workers are fair, and asking them to sign a petition opposing regional pay for Health Care workers in North Somerset.

Meet on Grange Road at either hospital entrance at any time between 7.30 am and 10.30 am on 4th September - we'll provide the banners.

Or come and see us between 12 noon and 4 pm on 4th September on Weston High Street - near the Italian Gardens.
