    Great Britain’s doctors and nurses poised to strike after cost-cutting measures leaked

    Great Britain’s doctors and nurses poised to strike after cost-cutting measures leaked

    Britain’s National Health Services’ plans to “avert a funding crisis” by cutting doctors’ and nurses’ salaries by around 5 percent, along with some receiving cuts in overtime and vacation, have been leaked.

    The organization representing Britain’s doctors and nurses, the British Medical Association, has yet to reveal whether they will pursue a second strike in months in response to the news. They went on strike for the first time in 40 years earlier this year after changes to their pensions were announced. From the Daily Mail:

    But Jeannett Martin of the Royal College of Nursing said such proposals could damage morale in the NHS further, with ‘serious implications for the recruitment and retention of staff . . . [and] patient care’. 

    A BMA spokesman said: ‘This is not how successful and sustainable efficiencies are going to be achieved.’

    Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) was caught on video by Breitbart’s Rebel Pundit while outside the Supreme Court waiting for the Obamacare decision. On the tape, she expresses admiration for the idea of doctors unionizing–and referred to how “health outcomes were better” when the doctors went on strike in Israel.

    better pay attention,seiu is getting a very large footprint into the health-care system already.
    hope it’s not me or mine needing care when they go on strike,to make health-care the same as all other public sector unions,we need more benifits,and higher wages for the patiences of course.
