HEALTH BOSSES in Glasgow have upped the stakes in the long-running fight by medical secretaries to win decent pay. All 300 of the secretaries are due to strike for a week from Monday. Sixty medical secretaries in the surgical division are already striking for three days every week.
Last week management at the North Glasgow Universities Hospital Trust threatened reprisals against striking workers. The strikers' UNISON union rightly warned that any such action would lead to escalation.
