RCN to consult on anti-strike rule


The ability to withdraw ones labour in defence of poor conditions of employment has a long history in the UK. The right of nurses to strike is one of the few ways that seems available in order for the profession to be "listened too". Of course running an esential service requires that there be great thought into how the practicalities of strke action effect one's patients and colleagues. We should remember that poor conditions for nursing & medical staff inevitably leads to poor services for patients & clients and we have a duty of care to do what we can to maintain & improve both!
