Unite nurses vote in favour of strike

  • 1 Comment

Nurse members of Unite could strike before Christmas, after voting in favour of industrial action over the government’s three-year NHS pay deal.

Of the members who responded to the ballot, 76% said they would take part in industrial action short of a strike, but 53% also said they would be prepared to strike.

Details surrounding the date and type of action to be taken will be made today by Unite’s health sector committee.

David Fleming, Unite’s national officer for health, said: ‘The door is still open for the government to re-open negotiations on pay before any action commences and our members would welcome such an initiative.

‘Whatever action our members take, emergency cover will be maintained at all times and the welfare of patients and clients will remain paramount.’
