RCN poll to reveal nurses' appetite to strike

Around 270,000 nursing professionals working in the NHS across the UK are eligible to take part in an online pay poll.

The poll explicitly asks whether members want to strike; take “action short of a strike”, including working only contracted hours, demanding to be paid for overtime and not completing duties expected of a higher pay band; or take no further action.

If members vote in favour of industrial action a formal ballot will then be held to meet legal requirements.
