RCN call for strike action

13th August 2007
95% of RCN members in England want a ballot on the possibility of staging industrial action in relation to the government's 2.5% pay offer.

In the light of new proposals which offer nurses £38 annually until 2010 - as payment towards NMC costs - RCN members will be asked to put their views forward. The RCN council will then make a decision based on these findings in September.

Mike Travis, chairperson of the RCN's membership, representation and diversity committee, said: "What we need to do is go back to members and gauge their response to this improved offer before council makes its final decision whether to accept the award in September."
