Although I love my job I am very unhappy with the pay we receive. Our pay is set by our local authority and we are really low paid. What makes it worse is now that the co- gov have abolished the SSSNB I feel we have no chance in ever being paid fairly for what we do. Some of us went through job evaluation and single status and lost alot of money. When i was given the role of HLTA i expected to be recognised financially for all the hard work we do but i was so wrong! All we ask for is to have a national pay scale where no matter where we live if we do the same job, same hours etc we should be paid the same.
