There was a bold, lively demo in front of Aintree hospital on 26 August. It’s great that NHS staff have taken a bold step and are continuing with action for a 15% pay rise.
There was great support from passersby. But it mustn’t stop there.
The demo was predominantly nursing staff, who see the quality of care they provide compromised by NHS privatisation. The unions need to take up the 15% pay rise demand.
Workers should join unions and get organised. If the union leaders refuse to fight for workers, then the workers must make them. When workers come together, they can win.
