Hospital dental trainee industrial action in England
NHS trade unions are increasingly pushing back against below inflation pay awards from the Department of Health and some have proceeded to calling industrial action.
Upcoming industrial action
We are calling for further strike action by hospital dental trainees at the trusts listed below.
The first strike will take place over 3 days from 7am on Wednesday 20 December to 7am on Saturday 23 December.
The second strike will take place over 6 days from 7am on Wednesday 3 January until 7am on Tuesday 9 January.
This strike will be a full withdrawal of labour.
If the Government fails to make meaningful progress in negotiations with the BMA, we will re-ballot our hospital dental trainees in England and Wales from 8 January to 21 February, and in Northern Ireland from 8 January to 19 February.
If you're a hospital dental trainee, we need you to make sure you're ballot ready so you can have your say on future strikes.
To be ballot ready, we need you to tell us your job role, employer and workplace. We're also legally required to undertake the ballot by post, so please also check that we have the correct home address on your BDA account.
Let's get re-ballot ready
