A SECOND round of strikes are due to take place by NHS workers over a pay dispute.

Members of Unison from Queen Alexandra Hospital, in Cosham, and St James’ Hospital, in Milton, will be staging a four-hour walkout on Monday.

It will last from 7am to 11am and will be followed by six days of action short of strike action between Tuesday and Sunday, when members will work to rule and not do any unpaid overtime.

Workers are disputing a one per cent pay increase being offered by the government.
