Ambulance service Clinical Supervisors at YAS to be given substantial back pay and a job grade uplift
GMB Union has won a 'staggering' £2 million equal pay claim for Yorkshire Ambulance workers.
Following a protracted and difficult dispute with the trust around the banding of clinical supervisors, GMB has achieved the result our members have been fighting for.
An independent trust has now evaluated the role at a band 7. This means GMB members will receive a significant uplift and substantial back pay. This claim is worth an estimated £2 million.
Remuneration will now be calculated for those clinical supervisor members affected dating back to November 2017.
Sue Wood, GMB Senior Organiser, said:
"As a direct result of six years campaigning Yorkshire Ambulance Service have been forced to right this pay injustice.
"This staggering two-million-pound win is a huge success for these dedicated NHS staff.
"This is a monumental moment and testament to the continued work of the GMB reps and members in fighting a wrongful banding.
"This outcome demonstrates just how much can be achieved through worker power, GMB members standing together and fighting for what is right."
