Nurse and midwife strike action suspended after new pay offer


The never-ending question is today or tomorrow? Part of me says 1% is better than nothing - take it and run because that is all you'll get. However, most of me says - you are being sold down the river again - this is a fob off and when you account for all the other stuff that you have to shell out on - it's less than nothing % in my pocket. It seems very timely that the Tory government can say that they gave more to the Nurses, averted a strike and safeguarded patients at election time. Or am I just an old cynic?
