From The Socialist newspaper, 21 January 2000

Vote Roger Bannister

AFTER THE government's NHS pay announcement, Socialist Party member and Campaign for a Fighting and Democratic UNISON (CFDU) candidate for UNISON general secretary has called on the union to reject the insulting offer and reinstate the ballot for strike action amongst UNISON's NHS ancillary staff members.

Roger said: "Top consultants will get a 4,000 rise to 124,000 whilst nurses will get less than 10 a week to bring their wages to less than 15,000. Ancillary workers will get less than 10 a week, which is not even enough to bring their wages up to 5 an hour, UNISON's minimum wage demand.

"I call for UNISON to reinstate the strike ballot if the government don't increase the offer. The ballot, amongst UNISON's 250,000 ancillary worker members, was suspended last year for no good reason."

Ballot papers for the general secretary election are now being sent out to the nearly two million members and retired members of UNISON earlier than scheduled. No doubt union officials hope to get votes in before Roger's campaign gets through to all areas. A vote for Roger Bannister is a vote for a leadership campaigning for properly funded public services.

Roger says:

CFDU leaflets and posters are available from Glenn Kelly on 020 7251 8449. The ballot closes on 18 February.
