GMB to Ballot 30,000 Members over 2014/15 Pay Offer For NHS Staff

The trail of broken promises and deceit leads directly to the Prime Minister refusing to honour the independent pay review body's recommendations says GMB.

 

GMB is preparing to ballot 30,000 members employed in the NHS for strike action and action short of a strike over the pay offer for 2014 and 2015 to NHS staff.

GMB is the main union in the ambulance service. The ballot will take place in August/September with any action commencing in October.

GMB members have been consulted on a 1% unconsolidated offer for 2014 for those who get it and a further 1% unconsolidated offer in 2015 for those who get it. The overwhelming majority rejected the offer and wanted to move to an official ballot for industrial action to secure a better offer.

Brian Strutton, GMB National Secretary for Public Services, said "GMB is preparing to ballot 30,000 members in the NHS for both strike action and action short of strike.

Other NHS trade unions and professional bodies are also proceeding with ballots.

The trail of broken promises and deceit leads directly to the door of number 10. The Prime Minister is to blame for this - he has refused to honour the independent pay review body's recommendations and has instead imposed divisive and unacceptable proposals in breach of our long standing agreements. That's why GMB members have demanded an industrial action ballot."
