NHS pay freeze could result in strike action

21st April 2010

Unison leader Dave Prentis has told his union’s annual health conference in Brighton that attacks on pay and pensions are likely to result in strike action.

He has warned that Unison would not stand for a pay freeze and was potentially prepared to protect “the pay and pensions issue interlinked” through industrial action. Mr Prentis praised the government’s announcement about the NHS becoming the preferred provider but said that during the general election Unison would continue to exert pressure on the government.
