UNISON Northern Ireland

Secretary of State for NI visits pay demo

Today members of our Unison Greenpark Branch spoke with Julian Smith, the new Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, as he visited Musgrave Park Hospital. UNISON members demonstrated at the security hut to show we will not be left behind.

Mr Smith stopped to talk to UNISON reps John Crossan and Sean Hughes on pay parity. John informed the secretary of the inequality of Northern Ireland health care workers and how it is not acceptable.

Mr Smith is hoping to hold meetings with the political parties here in a few weeks and states our pay is on the agenda.

We won't be left behind! Fund pay now for health and social care workers in Northern Ireland.
