Health unions vote for revised pay offer

U.K. U.K.
Health unions have voted to accept the government's revised pay offer for NHS employees. Unions had been considering industrial action in response to the government's decision to stage the 2.5% pay award, paying 1.5% in April 2007 followed by 1% in November. There has been no change to this proposal but the government has offered some additional payments: lower paid staff in pay bands 1 and 2 will be guaranteed an increase in salary of £400; staff in pay bands 3 and 4 will get 2.5% in salary plus an additional £38; staff in pay bands 5 to 8a will receive 2.5% plus an additional contribution of £38 towards professional fees.
