Nurse and midwife strike action suspended after new pay offer


I agree with comments by anon 10:33am above - the unions only asked for 1% and acceptance of the pay review body recommendations, and this is what they got. The health minister saved face by not giving much away. The point is that industrial action has worked! Even though the RCN opted out but agrees to take the money! Imagine what could happen in the future if the unions manage to get organised. No whingeing, just action for the next round. That's what people need to learn. The next thing to oppose is govt proposals to interfere with the union ballots, so that a large number of eligible members have to vote.
