  • Nurses vote to go on strike: it’s not just about the money

    Votes are in, and nurses across the UK have voted to go on strike. In England, that will affect 130 NHS providers, all NHS employers in Scotland and Northern Ireland, and all but one in Wales. The ballot results come at a time when over 25,000 nursing staff have left the profession, and there are over 47,000 RCN vacancies. The current pay offer still leaves nurses more than 20% worse off than ten years earlier, and many nurses have a wage that is falling behind the National Living Wage at an increasing rate.
