Health workers vote for strike action over pay

U.K. U.K.
Health workers will be taking four hours of strike action on Monday 13 October followed by action short of a strike on the following four days. The strike is in protest at the government's refusal to endorse a 1% pay increase for all staff recommended by the health service pay review body. Instead the government has offered the minority of health workers a lump sum worth 1% of pay. This comes after five years where pay has failed to rise in line with inflation. The protest is being supported by the RCM midwives' union - the first time in 133 years that RCM members have backed strike action. Members of the Unite union will be joining the action and the GMB union has also been balloting its members.
