As many as 100,000 nurses across England, Wales and Northern Ireland will stage walkouts on December 15 and 20 in a dispute over pay, in a strike that promises to be the Royal College of Nursing’s (RCN) largest ever. Members of the union voted in favour of industrial action earlier this month.

It said nurses and other NHS staff it represents will strike at half of the locations in England where a legal mandate for strikes was secured in that vote.

Meanwhile, there will be strike action at every NHS employer in Wales bar one, as well as throughout Northern Ireland healthcare trusts.

With over 465,000 members, the walkouts will represent just over a fifth of the RCN’s membership.
