Health and social care unions plan strike action


Trade unions organising in health and social care are calling for strike action on 16 February. They are unhappy that the government has postponed negotiations on pay levels and job rankings that it was committed to in an agreement signed last year. The unions want to see pay levels across the health sector adjusted to ensure fairness across the public sector. They have been further angered by the government’s unilateral decision to deal separately with doctors and dentists which had been previously been part of the public sector-wide negotiations.
