SF backs health workers’ industrial action-McLaughlin

Sinn Féin Foyle MLA  and chair of the Assembly’s Health committee Maeve McLaughlin said:

“The British Tory Government has implemented a policy of pay freezes and year-on-year cuts, which in reality are pay cuts which have left many within the health service in poverty.

“The vast majority of workers within the health service are under paid and deserve to have a decent wage.

“The service these people provide should not be taken for granted and we must support their call for a decent wage.

It’s important to show our support for proper wages and conditions for health workers.”
