Picket line at Louth Hospital

A PICKET line is being planned for outside Louth County Hospital on Wednesday morning.

Strikers are planning to meet there from about 7.30am.

There is also a picket line planned outside the social services facility at Eastfield House in Eastfield Road, Louth.

Police staff across the county are also to join public sector workers in strike action on Wednesday.

Polie Community Supports Officers, control room operators, custody assistants and town enquiry officers are amongst those taking part.

Police staff say they are ‘feeling the pinch’ with pay cuts, increments freezes and job cuts.

Public sector trade union UNISON says it has granted exemptions from the strike action to Lincolnshire Police for safety critical roles, for the safety of the public.
