RCN announces further industrial action dates
The Royal College of Nursing has confirmed that it plans to take further strike action from the 1 to 3 March at 128 NHS employers in England.
The next strikes will run without pause for 48 hours from the morning of Wednesday 1 March to the morning of Friday 3 March. The RCN have also stated publicly that there will be no negotiated derogations and that they expect employers to arrange cover for “life preserving services” from the wider workforce.
For 24-hour services, strike action will commence at the beginning of the local day shift and continue until the same time on 3 March. For services that are not 24-hour services, strike action will start at 6am on 1 March and end at the same time on 3 March.
