Junior doctors in England to be reballotted over industrial action

The BMA’s Junior Doctors Committee for England has decided to reballot its members for another six months of industrial action. This time, junior doctors will also be asked to approve “action short of a strike” as part of the mandate for action, which includes any other industrial action to put pressure on the employer without a full strike. This is in response to the government’s new anti-strike laws. Examples of this type of action could include working to rule or not working overtime. This additional option will allow junior doctors to continue taking industrial action despite the new laws.
