Health workers at the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust are to be allowed to park for free at work following an agreement reached with UNISON today (Friday).
After a two-year campaign, charges at Lincoln County Hospital, Grantham and District Hospital, Pilgrim Hospital Boston and County Hospital Louth will be axed, saving employees up to £300 a year.
UNISON East Midlands regional organiser Elliot Dean said;
“This agreement will save hard-pressed staff more than £1.2m per year, money they can’t afford to lose.
“Exhausted NHS workers – who’ve been pushed to the limit during the pandemic – will be relieved that hospital bosses have done the right thing and put staff safety and wellbeing before profits.”
