Junior Doctors Boost Democracy.

98% of Junior Doctors voted for strike action in their resistance to the imposition of a new contract of employment.

The Tories formed a government with the support of only 24.4% of the electorate but in their Trade Union Bill they will mandate that in “important public services” at least 40% of the membership vote in favour of action. They say this will “boost democracy”. 74.5% of BMA members eligible to vote did so, for strike action.

Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary of State, calls the vote for action “very disappointing”, yet he refuses talks at ACAS.

Doctors have shown support for their union the BMA, which is a boost for their democracy. The government will assert their dictatorship; we will see them bully, we will see them try to break the strike, guardians of “freedom” will no doubt complain and court action may be taken against the BMA.

Workers as patients and in our unions have to support our Junior Doctors who are acting for a safe Health Service and continuation of high quality medical education. They have found themselves on the front line of the battle against the Trade Union Bill.

Don’t let them fight alone! Protect the right to strike!

If Cuba proves that socialism doesn’t work, does Haiti prove that capitalism doesn’t work? (And remember, Cuba is under a 60-yr US blockade while Haiti gets billions in US aid.)
