College of Podiatry members in Wales resoundingly voted YES

The College of Podiatry has today declared the result of its ballot of NHS members in Wales on the 3 year pay offer recently made by the Welsh Government.

43.40% of our members voted and the result was as follows:

87% voted to accept the pay offer.

13% voted to reject the pay offer.

Members in England and Scotland have already voted to accept pay deals and the College of Podiatry will now be demanding our members in Northern Ireland are made a similar offer.

Chief Executive and General Secretary Steve Jamieson said:

“We have engaged and consulted with our members across Wales over the proposed 3 year pay deal over the last 6 weeks sharing all the information on the pay offer. We recommended a yes vote and encouraged our members to participate to ensure that their voices were heard.

I am delighted to say that most of our members in Wales have participated in our ballot. The result of this ballot is an overwhelming acceptance of this deal with 87% voting in favour of accepting. We have shared our results with the other trade Unions and have also informed the Welsh Government of our acceptance of this offer.

As I previously stated when sending out the ballot, I do think this is a fair deal for our members and will be encouraging my staff to build on this for any pay offers in the future.

I would like to thank all those who have worked hard to deliver this outcome and in particular would like to thank our members in Wales for voting.”
