Two thirds of the unionised NHS workers in England voted to strike, announcing the NHS’s first pay strike in 32 years. Up to 88% of the balloted members indicated they would join the strike. The workers are angry about recent news that a planned 1% pay rise in 2015 and another 1% in 2016, will not apply to many NHS workers, because it is reserved for workers who will not get a raise from length of service or experience. The unions have reacted outraged that the already disappointing raise will not even apply to all workers.
