HOSPITAL porters, cleaners, health visitors and therapists could join nurses on NHS picket lines in a row over pay.

The Unite union will ballot its 100,000 国民保健服务 members and encourage them to strike in protest at ministers’ “miserable” pay rise offer.

It comes after the Royal College of Nursing this week urged its half-a-million members to do the same.

Unite also represents ambulance staff, health scientists, psychologists, audiologists, optometrists and admin and IT workers across England and Wales.

The union said it is outraged at a pay deal equal to around four per cent while inflation closes in on 12 百分.

General secretary Sharon Graham 说: “This offer is nothing other than a massive national pay cut for NHS staff.

“After everything they have been through with the 冠状病毒 大流行病 and the service this workforce gives this country day in, day out, this is a kick in the teeth from the government and an insult to staff and patients alike.

“This ballot is a chance for our members to have their say, and whatever they decide, they will have the full backing of Unite.”
