Picket Line

  • 37 thousand nurses have taken to the picket line for the third day today - in a row over pay and conditions, including over 100 at Mayo University Hospital in Castlebar.

    A further 25 thousand medical appointments are cancelled and the HSE says it's getting harder to reschedule as the industrial action continues.

    The Government shows no sign of budging in the dispute.

    Both sides last met 10 days ago in the Labour Court, but it decided they were too far apart to intervene.
