Nurses feel like they are having to beg for pay

NURSES feel like they have had to ‘beg for money’ after not receiving all they were due for December, a union representative has said.
Royal College of Nursing representative Bev Clark, pictured, said members had been given two options to get the enhanced payments they were owed – either to wait until next month’s salary or to write ‘hardship letters’ to human resources.
‘It’s almost like having to beg for money that we have already made,’ she said.
‘You have to fill out details such as how much your mortgage is. The hardship letters are the key issue for me. They did get their basic pay, but people rely on their extra pay.’
Mrs Clark has been in contact with HSSD about her members’ issues and believed it was caused by the States’ new updated computer system, SAP.
