The city's frontline health workers are to stage a demonstration next week amid calls for pay equality. 

Nurses and health care workers are calling on the Scottish Government to open discussions surrounding a pay increase in respect of the coronavirus pandemic.

It comes shortly after the UK Government announced public sector workers would benefit from a pay rise. This included doctors, dentists, teachers and other key workers. Nurses, care staff and other health care workers were however snubbed. 

A statement from organisers reads: "Socially distanced Pay demonstration to demand that the clause in the three-year pay deal is re-opened and Scottish Government discusses a payment in respect of the coronavirus pandemic.

"NHS staff deserve better. Claps don't pay our bills.

"Track and Trace information will be taken. Please wear a mask if attending."

NHS staff will gather on Tuesday, 18 August outside the city's Royal Infirmary at 11am for one hour.

It will be the second protest to be held in nine days in their calls for pay equality.

On Saturday, around 400 NHS and health care workers descended to Glasgow Green as they made demands for pay parity within the public sector and made calls against poor staffing levels and the privatisation of the NHS.
