Royal College of Nursing consults on industrial action rule

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) is consulting on the rule which allows RCN Council to authorise industrial action.

The RCN says in its consultation that this means that the RCN Council is already able to authorise industrial action.

The consultation gives RCN members the opportunity to review the rule and consider whether any wording requires change.

RCN members are asked to send their comments to RCN Senior Employment Relations Adviser Gerry O’Dwyer by 31 December 2008 by email to gerry.o'dwyer@rcn.org.uk.

Last month the RCN and other NHS unions urged the government to re-open pay talks for 2009 following an unexpected inflation rise.
