News from the People’s Assembly
The Junior Doctors will commence their first day of Industrial Action tomorrow. The BMA has stated “it is clear that the government is still not taking junior doctors’ concerns seriously… repeatedly dragged its feet throughout this process, initially rejecting our offer of talks and failing to make significant movement during negotiations.”
It is of vital importance that we stand with and support our Junior Doctors.
Picket sites will be in operation from 8am – 8pm tomorrow. Find your nearest picket herePlease tweet or Facebook your photos and we will share.
