GMB union have welcomed the Welsh Governments announcement for the ‘upstanding sense of duty’ that Wales healthcare workers have provided during the Covid 19 pandemic. 

Commenting on today's announcement, Mike Payne, GMB Senior Organiser said: 

“This is excellent news, and the least our magnificent Health and Social care workers deserve. 

“Their care and commitment over the last 12 months fighting COVID has been exemplary, shouldering the risk without a second’s hesitation and facing up to challenges that could possibly affect them and their families for many years in the future.  

“The only human response to that is to reward that upstanding sense of duty and it’s clear that this Welsh Labour government has put its money where its mouth is. 

“They've shown Health & Social care staff that they’re valued, which is something that the Tories in Westminster could learn from.”
