Chris Hart: 'Twenty years on, it’s time we stopped acting in Unison'


Passivity is the word. Remember- the RCN and any other Union, exists primarily for it's members. They even sign agreements now with companies- "supporting their business plans" does this mean wages? staffing levels? What a conflict . Too much of a stronghold on nursing- how many of nursing lecturers (or other bodies and committees---) are RCN members? Recall- the RCN advocate- discussing only GOOD CARE- in order to maintain the image of nursing. Nurses - you may use ACAS also for advice and mediation-- an independent body. Yes- Unions do receive Govt funding for certain projects and are afraid of losing that.
