Full Solidarity with NHS Staff in the Fight for Fair Pay – Socialist Campaign Group of Labour MPs statement

“Should heroic NHS staff be forced to take strike action in order to defeat the government’s disgraceful proposal & secure the fair pay & decent treatment they deserve, then they will have our full support & solidarity.”

“The Conservative government is treating NHS staff with absolute contempt.

The government proposal of a pay award for NHS staff of just 1% is a real terms pay cut.

It’s been NHS staff – not the Health Secretary, the Prime Minister or the government – that have been heroes throughout this crisis.

They should be getting a proper pay rise. Not a kick in the teeth.

We stand with NHS staff and their trade unions in the face of this arrogant betrayal by the government.

Should heroic NHS staff be forced to take strike action in order to defeat the government’s disgraceful proposal and secure the fair pay and decent treatment they deserve, then they will have our full support and solidarity.”
