Unite NHS Day of Protest - 18th July

Cut our pay - No way!

Dear Colleagues,

Unite members across the country will take part in day of protest against the NHS pay offer on the 18th July 2008. Workers will be campaigning around the slogan - ‘Cut my pay? No way!’ A ballot of Unite’s health sector workers gave the union a strong mandate in favour of industrial action over the three year deal of 7.99%. Health visitors, hospitals pharmacists, health care chaplains and members in many other health care professions and support services voted overwhelmingly with 94.8% turning down the pay deal. The union is angry that the government is telling them to accept a pay deal which in the current economic climate represents a significant pay cut. On the 18th July members will demonstrate at hospitals across the country.
