Health workers in Hertfordshire may strike again later this month over a pay dispute.
GMB union members in England and Northern Ireland have voted to take strike action for four hours on November 24.
Unions taking action are GMB, Unison, Unite, UCATT, Society of Radiographers, Royal College of Midwives, POA, Managers in Partnership, British Association of Occupational Therapists, British Dietetic Association, and Hospital Consultants and Specialists Association.
It follows a walkout on October 13 and action short of a strike between October 14-17.
A ballot taken by 22,000 GMB members showed overwhelming support for industrial action in response to the failure of the coalition government to implement a one per cent pay increase.

Rehana Azam, GMB national officer for the NHS, said: “For a second week NHS staff will be taking industrial action over pay. We regret having to inconvenience NHS users again, but the intransigence of the government and employers leaves us no choice.”
