UK JUNIOR DOCTORS LAUNCH LEGAL ACTION OVER SLAVE WAGE CONTRACT, MULL JOINT PROTEST WITH TEACHERS


Junior doctors have begun legal action against the government to try and stop it imposing its unpopular new contract on 45,000 medics working in the NHS.

The British Medical Association (BMA) has launched a judicial review which challenges the legality of the decision by the health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, to force the new terms and conditions on all junior doctors in England.

The move comes as it emerged that teachers may join forces with the junior doctors as part of their campaign against the government’s plans to privatize the education system.
