Peter Macklin, GMB Regional Organiser, said:
“Regardless of the latest developments at Stormont, our members are still facing the prospect of a zero percent offer made last year being imposed.
“A few years ago, these workers were being hailed as frontline heroes. They deserve better and they are ready and willing to strike to secure it.
“At any point, if a meaningful pay offer is received then that is something our members will consider and respond to appropriately but in the absence of any movement we have no alternative but to proceed with the planned action.”
