Nurses de­serve hike in wages

Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

THE Fi­nance Min­is­ter’s dis­missal of nurses’ pay claim is an in­sult to staff who keep­ing the HSE from col­lapse.

Know­ing medics have been an­gered by his re­fusal to meet the INMO, Paschal Dono­hoe went on tele­vi­sion to be in­ter­viewed by a for­mer Fine Gael min­is­ter.

His claim that nurses can­not be treated dif­fer­ently from other civil ser­vants is a joke.

A fail­ure to in­vest in nurs­ing will im­pact the pub­lic’s health in the long-term.

If nurses take in­dus­trial ac­tion they will have pub­lic’s sup­port while the Gov­ern­ment will be blamed for fail­ing to pre­vent it.
