Delegates heard heartbreaking stories about staff shortages, stressed workers and attacks from bosses at the Unison union’s health conference last week.

One delegate spoke of his A&E department being constantly short of stock and supplies. He said that workers were bringing in supplies themselves­.

Another delegate disagreed with Unison general secretary Dave Prentis who had said that “out of every 100 jobs going even if we save 20 it’s a victory”.

Workers were clearly up for a fight. A statement announced near the end of conference that a joint TUC anti-cuts rally will take place this year lifted delegates’ spirits.
