NHS Mid Yorkshire strike suspended following productive talks with trust
Adrian O'Malley, branch secretary, Unison Mid Yorkshire Health (personal capacity)
The strike action of Unison estates and facilities staff at Mid Yorkshire hospitals against outsourcing planned for 2 July has been suspended. The trust management has agreed to investigate keeping the staff in the NHS pension scheme and employment. They have also suspended a committee looking at inferior terms and conditions and a potential two-tier workforce.
In a statement to members, Mid Yorkshire Health Unison branch said:
"Our strike action is suspended but the dispute and strike ballot result remains in place until 12 December. We will update you regularly on the talks and if they break down strike action will be reinstated immediately."
