Jersey pay claim

HCSA has submitted a fresh pay claim for Jersey hospital doctors in a bid to restore income parity with the UK.

The association was instrumental in winning a landmark 4 per cent rise earlier this year but is now targeting 2017 with the aim of matching mainland wages over three years. Jersey hospital doctors’ rates currently lag 14 per cent behind the UK following a spate of low pay rises.

HCSA submitted a wealth of evidence to support the claim at a recent LNC and the management side will now discuss it with the State Employment board before responding.
