4th April, 2007

Representatives of major hospitals, all doctors and leaders within our union, please email the following address. This strike is intended to be a well organised national peaceful event and help strike a deal for doctors, outwith MTAS and MMC. Its still not too late. Don't take part in MMC if you don't agree with it.

doctorsonstrike@hotmail.com

The process is underway

Venues: Several, TBC

Not sure it would be helpful to advise people not to engage in the MMC process although many actualy by now have.

As for the strike - as it stands it wouldnt be as if you could just 'take off' and join. You would (ironically) have to take permission from the trust by way of annual leave. To strike as such without grievance (about work not training) being lodged with employers (at the union stage) is a sackable offence.

Worth having these points considered prior to the date to ensure one takes the most appropriate action in order to join the movement on the day.

A very sensible comment. Thanks Omer. We dont need any more people joining the already expected 6000 jobless parade (with a possible loss of GMC registration)

It will be considered as leave without pay, and u cant be sacked..u shud be issued a warning first, otherwise it ll be considered as unfair dismissal which u could sue th trust for...

A clear date is given,...therefore , i f they wish to be prepared for it they can do so...it s not like we decide one sday and the next day we dont turn up...

Not withstanding that he is completely wrong, why is an SpR who has nothing to do with all this telling us what we can and can't do?  Needs the day off as usual, does he? >:( >:(
