Today was the Unite Day of Action against pay cuts. It’s too early to have a detailed picture of what happened and where – but a quick Google search showed that action of one sort or another took place across the UK. This reflects the very real anger that health workers feel. People have had enough.
We have a Government that continues to treat public sector workers with open contempt. We were right to take industrial action today. The task ahead of us now is to build this fightback.
