GMB Suspend Strike Action In NHS In England And Northern Ireland To Consult Members On New Offer In Pay Dispute

New offer enables suspension of strike action while we consult with members on whether they wish to accept the offer or not says GMB.

GMB is to consult 22,000 members in the NHS in England and Northern Ireland on a new offer that has emerged after a week of talks to resolve the pay dispute in the NHS.

The new offer has enabled GMB to suspend the 24 hour strike action by members in the ambulance service on 29th January as well as the 12 hour strike action by GMB members in the rest of the NHS on that date.

A national meeting of GMB NHS, Ambulance & Nursing Committee Senior Representatives will take place on Wednesday 4th February 2015. At the meeting full details of the offer will be set out and the timetable for a consultation will be agreed.

GMB members took part in the strike action in the NHS across England & Northern Ireland on 13th October and 24th November in the pay dispute.

Rehana Azam, GMB National Officer, said “GMB is pleased that after a week of talks we have secured a new offer. This enables us to suspend the strike action while we consult with our members on whether they wish to accept the offer or not.”
