GMB to ballot NHS members on Industrial Action over pay

Read the News HERE

GMB is to ballot tens of thousands of NHS workers for strike action over the insulting 3% ‘pay cut’ offered.

The industrial action ballot will open on November 10 and close December 15.

Any strikes would take place in the new year.

More than 9 out of 10 GMB members in the NHS have rejected the Government’s pay offer of 3% – which is below inflation and amounts to a real term pay cut.

GMB has been campaigning for a restorative increase of 15%, or £2 per hour  – whichever is highest -to replace what has been lost from NHS pay packets over the last decade.

The union was the only one to reject the last NHS pay deal in 2018.
