Lobbies take place across South West in run-up to Bristol event on Saturday


The campaign against the South West pay cartel is being ratcheted up this week, with lobbies, rallies and demonstrations, ahead of a protest march in Bristol on December 1st.

Unions in the region have fiercely opposed the pay cartel, which they fear will lead to up to 88,000 NHS staff facing a 15% pay cut, and changes to holiday and other entitlements.

The first demonstration is this morning, from 7 to 10am, outside the main entrance to Barnstaple Hospital, where the North Devon Healthcare Trust is meeting. It will include the handing in of a petition of staff and members of the public to the board members.

Tomorrow there will be lobbies taking place between 7-10am at the CWH Entrance, Barrack Road, Exeter and the Dorset Health Care University Trust,  from 8.45am, gathering outside Weymouth Fire Station.

There  will also be a joint union lobby of the Devon Partnership Trust Board meeting on Thursday 29 November, between 8-10am.

The demonstration in Bristol on Saturday begins at 11am on College Green, followed by a rally in Castle Park at 12.30pm.
