Ballot for strike action backed

13th June 2008

NHS workers who belong to the Unite union have rejected the government’s proposed three-year pay deal and have voted to ballot for strike action.

They have joined the GMB and Royal College of Midwives in rejecting the deal though the Royal College of Nursing has accepted the offer – worth 8% over the three years - for NHS staff in England. The Unite ballot offers the option of taking strike action or imposing an overtime ban. However, government ministers have made it clear they are not prepared to renegotiate the deal.
