Hospitals strike fear.

HUNDREDS of staff are poised to strike at two Liverpool hospitals.

More than 600 cleaners, caterers, porters and other workers at the Royal and Broadgreen voted for strike action before last-ditch pay talks.

Now they will be asked to confirm their decision after negotiations failed to meet their demands.

Private company ISS has called for workers to remain patient and said it needed time to get the deal right.

Hospital officials said they had invested pounds 1m in employee benefits and talks were continuing.

The crisis is the latest outbreak of a simmering pay row which nearly resulted in a strike last year.

Workers employed by ISS want the same pay deal as NHS staff.
