Junior doctors to be balloted on industrial action

Just take this hike in your pension contributions as a once in a lifetime increase - this will secure the pension scheme long term ----- OK if this guarantees our pensions for all doctors. Short while later - new Health secretary. We are almost doubling your pension contributions - for the added bonus of no extra returns, and we will tax your contributions, and also shrink and tax your pension pot. Dont like it - no problem we will impose it!!!!! Ha ha stupid unions and doctors! Oh yeah, no pay rises either - just expenses - so it isnt a secret tax hike and grab on just doctors that judes, civil servants, MPs etc etc dont have equal punishment. Don't trust the changes are going to be held for more than the time it takes to privatise the NHS - then 'Market Forces' will drive pay down for desperate doctors trying to find work, as most will be deskilled to Nurses/PA/HCAs as cheaper labour.
