Sheffield NHS workers to walk out on strike in row over pay rise

Have your say

Hospital workers in Sheffield are set to walk out on strike again as part of a row over pay.

The NHS workers will be on strike on Monday morning from 7am until 11am.

A rally will take place outside the Herries Road entrance to the Northern General Hospital in Fir Vale.

Speakers include John Cafferty, UNISON Regional Secretary, Liz Elfleet, from the Society Of Radiographers, Jacqui Milner, from Sheffield Pensioners Action Group and Louise Haigh, prospective parliamentary candidate for Sheffield Heeley.

The staff claim the government has ignored an independent pay review body recommendation of a 1 per cent pay rise.
