Health visitors to take day of action

  • Comment
Health visitors are to work to rule on a national day of action after a ballot by the union Unite voted in favour of strike action last week.

Unite said that if the government does not improve its three-year pay deal for nurses and most other non-medical NHS staff, it will organise a strike in the New Year.

A joint meeting of Unite’s Health Sector National Committee unanimously agreed the course of action today.

The day of protest will include a ban on non-essential paperwork, email exchanges, attendance at meetings, telephone calls and using personal mobile phones.

Members of the union will be asked to strictly adhere to their responsibilities as outlined on their Agenda for Change pay scales.
