Second NHS strike day: Monday 24 November 2014

Trade union members working in the NHS will step up their fight for fair NHS pay with a further four-hour strike on Monday 24 November.

Thousands of NHS workers took to picket lines at hospitals across England on the 13 October, behind a swell of public support, to protest against the government’s refusal to implement a tiny 1 per cent consolidated pay increase to all NHS staff.

They deserve a pay rise – Bristol Trade Union Council knows it, the public knows it. The government should be made to know it too.

If you’re not an NHS worker but care about the people who save lives and keep us healthy, please show your support. If you’re a Bristol Trades Union Council delegate why not consider volunteering to stand on the picket line with the banner – if you can, leave a reply below.

What action is being taken –

Four hour strike action – Monday 24 November 2014 from 07:00 -11:00
Action short of a strike (work to rule), starting at midnight on Monday 24 November to 18 January 2015

There will be a picket line on Monday 24 November between 7am-11am.

Let’s show the government that it’s time to pay UP for NHS workers.

  1. Health workers on strike received tremendous support during their four-hour stoppage on Monday 24 November.

    In solidarity Bristol Trades Union Council President Hugh Kirkbride and Unite IT & Comms Branch delegate Alex Kempshall spent some time with UNISON pickets at Bristol Central Ambulance Station.

    There was lots of public support motorists honked their horns in appreciation at the vital life-saving work of health staff. Pedestrians gave thumbs up signs with many wishing the pickets good luck in overturning the Governments 1% pay cap.

    The next two month continues with industrial action through a work to rule.
