Yorks NHS workers fight outsourcing

Save our NHS

Mick Griffiths, Wakefield and Pontefract Socialist Party

Mid Yorkshire Unison members and public supporters lobbied a Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust board meeting held on 14 June. A strike will proceed if the trust does not back down from its plan to transfer estates and facilities workers out of the NHS.

Demonstrators were invited inside the trust headquarters to address the board. Some of the board members seemed surprised that staff strongly supported striking against back door privatisation. Despite assurances that staff's views would be seriously considered, the board is using 'commercial confidentiality' as an excuse to make decisions in secret.

Union members are determined to resist being removed from the NHS. The strike will take place if the trust does not drop this 'proposal'.
