STAY TUNED for more updates! OUR FIGHT FOR PAY JUSTICE CONTINUES

Next steps

Dear Members,

Your Industrial Action committees in Health and Education will meet in the week commencing Monday January 29th. They will take stock of developments to date and plan the next steps in our campaigns to achieve pay justice.

We are determined to fight on. We will not be backing down.

The government must release funding so health, education and other public sector workers in Northern Ireland can have their pay disputes resolved, says UNISON today (Thursday).  

The call comes as thousands of health, care, school and other public sector workers, belonging to UNISON and 14 other unions, are to take strike action today, following the Westminster government’s ongoing failure to provide the funding needed to resolve pay disputes, says the union.

At today’s Executive Council meeting of the ICTU unanimous support was voiced for all our Northern Ireland affiliate unions engaging in industrial across Northern Ireland tomorrow.

UNISON members throughout support services in Education and the Health services are preparing for a big day of Industrial action.

For more than 12 months now members in Health Trusts and arms length bodies have led the way in industrial action.

Thursday will be your sixth day of strike for pay parity. You have never given up  and have steadfastly pursued your demands. UNISON is proud of the determination of  our members in the Health service to secure pay parity.

Preparation is well underway for all out strike action next week among thousands of UNISON health and education workers.

Industrial action committees meeting at UNISON Northern Ireland HQ today heard detailed reports of plans for extensive picket lines on January 18 at all the acute and community main health facilities.  EA school based and headquarter staff will also mount pickets right across the region.
