Give Nurses a Real Pay Rise


Health and care workers have been working tirelessly over the last year. That's why Merton Liberal Democrats fought to secure a fair wage for local care workers, and now we're demanding a real pay rise for nurses.

Nurses have been at the forefront of the pandemic, battling to save everyone hospitalised with coronavirus over the past year - including our Conservative Prime Minister. Yet the Conservative government are saying nurses only deserve a 1% pay increase - this barely keeps up with inflation. Merton Lib Dems are calling on the government to give Nurses a real pay rise.

Cllr Paul Kohler, Lib Dem spokesperson for Wimbledon, said, "Our local Conservative MP has shown how cheaply he values the sacrifices and hard-work of nurses serving in the biggest health emergency for a century. Merton Lib Dems are demanding the government recognise all they have done and grant nurses the pay rise they deserve".
