Hospital Workers on Second Strike Over Pay

Hospital Workers on Second Strike Over Pay

Staff at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn are out on strike again this morning in an ongoing dispute over pay.

Members of the main Unions have been taking part in the walk out between 7am and 11am.

The Government are refusing to give hospital workers a 1% pay rise saying they simply don’t have the cash.

Darren Barber spoke to KLFM News on behalf of union members at the hospital and says he doesn’t think that’s true:

“There is money. We can afford to put in a new rail link between London and Manchester. They can afford to give a pay rise of 9-11% to MPs.”

But he says all the staff area ware of patient safety and the public shouldn’t notice too much:

“Services will be covered by weekend shift patterns and skeleton shifts. There will be plenty of staff around and it’s not really going to affect patient services too much.”
