Members of the Psychiatric Nurses Association will strike next month in an escalating campaign of industrial action in their dispute over pay and staff shortages.
The psychiatric nurses will initially refuse to work overtime on 31st January, or on 5th, 6th and 7th February.
They will then escalate their industrial action to full strikes on 12, 13, and 14 February.
95% of PNA members rejected government proposals to address recruitment and retention issues among nurses.
This follows confirmation earlier this week from the INMO that they will strike for 24 hours on 30 January, as well as the 5, 7, 12, 13 and 14 February unless their pay demands are addressed.
