AQW 7143/16-21 – Pay Increase for Health Service Workers

Mr Patsy McGlone (Mid Ulster):  To ask the Minister of Health pursuant to AQW 2239/16-21, for an update on when the 1per cent pay increase agreed for Health Service workers will be implemented, given that it was anticipated to be paid in early autumn.

(AQW 7143/16-21)

Minister of Health:  The vast majority of staff received their uplift and arrears in their November salary. I understand that only those staff groups whose allowances need to be manually updated on the payroll system might experience a delay, but they should get their uplifts and arrears in December or January at the very latest.
