RCN to consult on anti-strike rule


It is a very long time since the RCN took a stand against governents which have systematically watered down Pay Review Body decisions. They have done this because there has been no effective opposition. Rulr 12 is not just about taking strike action, but any form of industrial action, and there are times when members of the RCN have needed this option to ensure that patient care was not compromised, but did not have it available to them. I am in favour of scrapping the rule in its present form. The RCN Council should have the authority to sanction limited industrial action (action short of strike action) where members feel patient care is compromised or to improve the salaries of its members.
