Hospital workers begin five day strike

Clerical and administration staff working at three West Yorkshire hospitals have started a five-day strike over proposed changes to their pay and jobs.

Workers at Pinderfields, Dewsbury and Pontefract hospitals voted unanimously for the industrial action after talks with management broke down last week. This week's action follows several walk-outs last year. The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust needs to save around 24 million pounds.
