Nurses think about action

16th May 2007

Nurses are to be asked if they want to take a national vote on industrial action over their pay rise.

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, nurses have been offered 1.5%, with an extra 1% to follow later but nurses want the full 2.5% immediately, which has happened in Scotland.

The Royal College of Nursing met over the issue and its council has decided a ballot will ask NHS members whether they want to take what would be the first ever national industrial action by nurses after a rule change in the mid-1990s permitted measures which do not harm patient care.
