Speaking at a Labour Party virtual conference discussion later today (Sunday) on how best to recognise and value NHS workers, both during and after the pandemic, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis will say:
“NHS staff have given their all for all of us. Now is the time to reward their incredible efforts and heroism, with a pay rise of at least £2,000 for every single NHS worker.
“We all know that the best thing for our NHS is a Labour government – and we all know that you only get a Labour government when there is real unity.
“It’s time to stop looking back and fighting the old battles of the past. Instead we must look forward, with one mission, to secure a Labour government.
“That’s how we’ll save our NHS.”
