Agenda for Change
Agenda for Change is the name given to the new national NHS pay and terms and conditions system. This pay system was introduced from October 2004 and its aim was to introduce new pay bands and harmonised terms and conditions for NHS workers. The system has been negotiated by the health departments and the national joint staff side unions.
A UNISON ballot on Agenda for Change voted overwhelmingly to accept the proposals.
This website has a resource page for your benefit called Stewards Zone where you will find copies of the Disciplinary & Grievance procedure and other policies plus branch minutes, claim forms, e-mail applications and links to UNISON resources and a load more.
