The main union in the United Kingdom calls the first strike in the history of the British health system

The main nursing union of United Kingdom has called the First strike in the history of the British healthcare system. The strike will take place on December 15 and 20.

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) British has explained that the talks with the Government have been a failure. For this reason, RCN indicates that the strike is the only possible option for them to carry out the requested 5% salary increase. Workers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland will stop two days in December for 12 hours.

RCN General Secretary, Pat Cullenhas stressed that it is “the ministers who have opted for the strike” because “they have the power and the means to stop this opening serious talks that address our dispute.”

Nursing staff are fed up with being taken for grantedthat he is underpaid and that the staffing is insecure, that we cannot give our patients the care they deserve,” Cullen said, as reported by the BBC.

The health strike joins the workers’ strike postcardsof the staff academicof the teachers of Scottish schools and workers in the sector railway in the country.

Although unions have signaled that there are no plans for general strikes, several have spoken of coordinating actions to maximize disruption and political impact.

The economic impact of the strikes remains uncertain, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), whose growth figures previously estimated the impact of closures such as the Queen’s funeral Isabel II in September, reports Guardian.
