GMB union members who work at King’s Mill Hospital are set to go on strike over proposals to cut staff pay.

Admin and clerical staff who work at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and are members of the union have voted for the strike action in an official ballot.

They will strike for one day each month starting on 27th August.

They are also set to work to rule and have an indefinite ban on working overtime.

The move is due to a dispute over a pay cut in the form of down-banding for the second time in 30 months.

Staff at Mansfield Community Hospital and Ashfield Health Village are also involved in the action.
