New Calls To Scrap NHS Pay Deal
12:41pm 28th March 2013
There are fresh calls for Cornwall's biggest hospital to scrap plans that would make doctors and nurses work longer for less.
It is after the South West Pay Consortium suggested cuts to holidays, maternity and sick pay.
Several other trusts have already pulled out.
Treliske bosses meet to discuss it later.
Unison rep Stuart Roden warns it will push workers away: "We're hoping that we can put a stop to this. We've made it clear to the trust that we're prepared to speak to them locally about ways to assist them in making their cost reductions but we're not prepared to attack our members pay and conditions to do that.
"If we force everybody in Cornwall down to the lowest common denominator that's clearly going to impact on the local economy. People won't be able to spend to go out to the shops, to the pubs, to the restaurants. It will drive our whole economy backwards and the whole thing is just misconceived."
