NHS Workers Strike Against The Pay Freeze


A report from the picket lines in Sunderland as NHS workers strike against a four-year long public sector pay freeze.

NHS staff in England went on strike for four hours this morning demanding that the government award them a pay rise. This is the second time NHS workers have walked out in the last two months in their efforts to smash the four-year long public sector pay freeze.

Picket lines outside hospitals and ambulance stations were colourful and well attended, seeing a diverse array of NHS trade unions working together to grab the attention of government, colleagues, media and members of the public alike (check out #NHSpay on twitter).
