The trade unions Unison, Unite, GMB and the Royal College of Midwives suspended strike action for the National Health Service members in England and Northern Ireland that was scheduled for 29 January. Suspension followed several meetings with Health Secretary Hunt to resolve disputes over pay. The unions will consult the members over a proposal put forward by the Department of Health. Several NHS walkouts were staged across the country last year after the government's decision not to implement a recommended 1% pay rise. The new proposal is said to include an extra £200 a year for lower paid staff and an increase of the bottom level of annual pay to £15,100.
