(not affiliated to TUC)
Following a special meeting, RCN Council said that industrial action balloting is ‘inevitable’ if rising anger about government proposals on NHS pensions is not addressed in the ongoing negotiations. Council agreed to support colleagues in the Day of Action on 30 November, though they did not decide to ballot immediately on industrial action. The RCN will now campaign to communicate the seriousness of the proposals and ensure that the RCN is ready to ballot as and when needed. http://www.rcn.org.uk/support/pensions SCP
