Medical staff to stage strike over pay
Action to happen one day before doctors’ walkout
HUNDREDS of staff at the British Medical Association (BMA) are to stage a one-day strike next week, a day before doctors take industrial action over pensions, it was revealed today.
The GMB, which represents around 400 workers at the BMA, said the walkout would be held on June 20 in a dispute over pay.
Doctors will take industrial action the following day, for the first time in almost 40 years, in protest at the Government’s controversial pension reforms.
