Junior doctors hav voted 98% to strike on a 76% turnout.
Oxfordshire Unison Health branch committee has issued the following statement about the junior doctors strike;
"Oxfordshire Health services branch of Unison fully supports junior doctors taking strike action against plans to impose a new contract that will cut unsocial hours pay and enforce loss of incremental pay.
We utterly condemn Jeremy Hunt and his latest attack on the NHS and its staff. We know that if the attack on the junior doctors is sucessful the government will seek to impose similar cuts on other NHS staff. We call on our branch members to support any picket lines and protests by the junion doctors."
