Nurses are set to ballot for strike action in the weeks ahead following their rejection of Government pay proposals to tackle recruitment and retention difficulties in the health service
Nurses to ballot for strike action after rejecting pay proposals
Nurses at it again despite the Public Service Pay Commission finding there was no generalised recruitment and retention problem in nursing and midwifery. I think we've all seen this before, the Unions will make a big song and dance about overcrowding as a tactic to get pay increases for their members. The government will capitulate and throw them a few extra euro a week. This will of course have zero impact on on overcrowding yet the Unions concerns about this will miraculously disappear. Payrises funded by the taxpayer with no improvement in services for patients secured.
I stepped out , I stepped in again , learning to dance for Lanigans ball.
