The GMB union has voted to reject an improved NHS pay deal from the Scottish government.

The union represents NHS ambulance staff, nurses, porters and radiographers

It said 66% of their members voted to reject the improved offer, which would have seen workers receive average 7.5% pay uplift.


The GMB suspended a planned 26-hour ambulance strike last month and put the new offer to members in a vote.

Members of Unite and Unison voted to accept the offer earlier this week.

Ballots of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and Royal College of Nursing (RCN) members are ongoing.
