The government still isn’t listening –the real value of pay in the NHS has fallen by a staggering 15% over the last five years. The government’s decision to deny 60 per cent of NHS staff a modest 1% consolidated cost of living pay increase this year, ignoring the recommendation of the independent pay review body (PRB) – the first time a government has done so – sparked the first walkout by NHS staff over pay in more than 30 years. Unite, Unison and GMB members within the NHS will be taking strike action on 29 January from 9am to 9pm
Below are details of NHS picket lines. I’m sure those taking action would appreciate support from Unite Community members who may be in the area.
