Huge price rise to park at work or forced park and ride!!

Huge price rise to park at work or forced park and ride!!

Not increase the cost of parking or force staff to use park and ride.

Why is this important?

I think there isn’t a person in this country that feels the latest pay deal we received was in anyway adequate and this was following a pay freeze for several years. Now to add insult to this our trust has decided to massively increase the cost for staff to park onsite using the cloak of “being green” as a reason. The alternative to parking onsite is a park and ride based in Fontwell - for many of us if we used this system would actually be travelling further every day - how green is that?? Also this would add a significant amount of time to an already long and arduous day.

Reasons for signing

  • Unfair tax on workers who pat out enough to get to work as it is.
  • NHS staff should receive free parking. Given the wonders they achieve despite the obstacles, to expect your staff to pay for parking at all is unacceptable.
  • We have no appreciable pay rise, we have to pay to register and now they want more parking money! We simply can't afford it. Why should we pay for the privilege of working?
