GMB calls off latest NHS Strike after a 4 to 1 vote over new pay offer

STRIKE action was planned to take place on 29 January by GMB members in the NHS in England, but it was called off to allow members to consider the new offer which does not apply to Northern Ireland, where the dispute continues says GMB. GMB members in the NHS in England voted, with 81% to accept and 19% to reject, the new offer that emerged after a week of talks in January to resolve the pay dispute in the NHS in England. Rehana Azam, GMB National Officer, said that the:- "GMB members in England have voted by 4 to 1 to accept the new offer secured after a week of talks. This means the pay dispute in England is resolved. So the strike action that was to take place on 29 January was called off. This is to allow members to consider the new offer. This was after 22,000 GMB members were forced to resort to strike action in the NHS across England and Northern Ireland last year, on 13 October and 24 November 2013, to secure this new offer. The new offer does not apply to Northern Ireland where the dispute continues." Email us via:-, with your views on this issue and let us know what you think about it.
