An NHS trust could be taken to an employment tribunal over its decision to slash car mileage rates drastically for some staff.
The RCN is taking legal advice over the move, which it claims could cost hundreds of Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust nurses an extra £2,400 a year each.
The trust cut its mileage rates from 47p to 24p for community staff who transferred to the trust from Northumberland and North Tyneside primary care trusts last year. Only staff who agree to use a lease car can remain on the higher rate.
