Ireland nurses strike looms

In what seems to be a desperate move to avert a looming nurses strike,Ireland’s public service management, nurses organisations and labour court had till yesterday 10 February not reached a common ground on negotiations set to address nurses grievances.

Nurses are demanding pay increase and the employer to address staff shortages.

If the consensus is not reached,more than 40 000 nurses including psychiatric nurses will embark on industrial action from Tuesday.

Health authorities are worried about the negative impact this will have on patients should the strike goes on.
