Re: Are doctors justified in taking industrial action in defence of their pensions? Yes
No. There are individuals in a far worse state than doctors.
There are two aspects to a strike. Consequences of the action and the justification of it.
It would be agreed that any strike action by doctors should not harm patients. But what is equally important is that it should be justifiable.
In this instance there is no justification.
