HUNDREDS of health workers joined in a protest as part of Unison’s campaign for fair pay in the NHS.

Nurses, paramedics, porters, cleaners, cooks, therapists and healthcare assistants took part in the demonstrations held at hospitals across Wales, including Glan Clwyd Hospital, Bodelwyddan.

Dawn Bowden, UNISON Wales head of health, said: “Our members are among those hit hard by the state of the economy, the rise in the cost of food and fuel, coupled with housing and benefit cuts.
 
"They have suffered five years of pay restraint and they deserve a decent pay rise. We understand the huge financial challenges that the Welsh Government are suffering as a result of the UK coalition’s funding cuts, and we will continue to challenge austerity program being driven from Westminster.”
