Northern Ireland midwives stage strike action.

"Midwives in Northern Ireland are staging a four-hour strike action on Thursday in a dispute over pay.

They are calling for a 1% pay increase, as was given to their colleagues in Wales, Scotland and England.

The industrial action is being held between 08:00 BST and 12:00 BST.

It is the first time members of the Royal College of Midwives have staged a strike in their 134-year history.

The Department of Health said officials were working to ensure a safe service was provided during the stoppage."

While NHS fat cats draw eye watering high salaries and pensions, the people at the coal face have to fight for a very modest pay rise. PM Cameron said he would not meddle with the NHS, he lied.

"He promised "no more pointless and disruptive reorganisations". Instead, change would be "driven by the wishes and needs of NHS professionals and patients".  Link to the promise here.
