GMB Union will today [Monday 15 November] ballot members working in the NHS on a fresh pay offer.

The Welsh Government made an additional pay offer, on top of the 3% overwhelmingly rejected by members earlier this year. [1]

The ballot closes on Monday 13 December.

If members reject the offer it could see GMB balloting for strike action, with the union already undertaking Industrial action ballots in England.

Paul Gage, GMB Regional Organiser said:

“Let’s be clear, this deal isn’t everything we’ve asked for.

“But the fact the Welsh Government has negotiated on pay is a big step forward from the deal imposed by the Tories in Westminster.

“The campaign isn’t over even if members accept this deal.

“We will fight, fight and fight again so that members get back every penny in the next decade they lost during the last.”
