Nhs nurses to take biggest ever strike action next month

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “NHS nurses to take biggest ever strike action next month” – below is their description.

Nurses will take their biggest ever strike action over two days next month – with walkouts planned across England, Wales and Northern Ireland on the 15th and 20th of December.

The Royal College of Nursing said the Government had turned down its request for formal, detailed negotiations – as ministers insisted a pay rise of 19 per cent was unaffordable.

The RCN says emergency care won’t be affected, but it’s likely to cause significant disruption to routine services.

In This Story: Ireland

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
