NHS staff in Wales, including nurses, occupational therapists, porters, paramedics, medical secretaries, cooks and healthcare assistants will strike for half a day in November and then work to rule for the following four days. Trade union Unison confirmed 27,000 members will stage the half-day stoppage on Monday 10 November. For the rest of the week, staff will take action short of a strike by ensuring they take breaks and work their contracted hours. The union said the action is in response to a recommended pay increase of 1% for staff being ignored. Instead a non-consolidated payment of £160 was offered.
