For the second time in a month tens of thousands members of 11 trade unions walked out for four hours in England and Northern Ireland in protest at the coalition government’s controversial decision not to accept a recommended 1% wage rise for all NHS employees (NHS workers in Scotland and Wales will be getting a 1% pay rise and the Living Wage). There were picket lines on every acute hospital, ambulance station and across many community health services. Workers provided life and limb cover and cared for anyone in need of emergency treatment.
