Nurses will hand a petition which asks for equal pay to a Guernsey politician today.

The Royal College of Nursing says a 10% pay increase would go towards closing the gap between nurses and other public sector workers.

Deputy Jane Stephens will take the petition on behalf of the Policy and Resources Committee.

Negotiations are ongoing.

A settlement was due by the end of June under a plan set up by the States at the beginning of the year. So far there has been no movement on pay.
