Nurse strikes in England end as vote turnout too low

STRIKE action by nurses at the Royal College of Nursing will not continue after the union’s ballot of its members in England failed to achieve a mandate reports The BBC.

While the majority of members voted to continue to take industrial action, the numbers taking part in the vote were too low for it to count.

Just over 43% too part – below the 50% threshold required.

The RCN balloted its members after the previous six-month mandate for strike action had expired.

Its members were among a minority of health staff who rejected the government’s pay deal of a 5% rise this and a lump sum of at least £1,655.
