The government is pursuing a legal action against the upcoming planned strike by nurses’ union RCN. The legal action claims that, because RCN’s current ballot mandate expires on 2 May, the final day of their planned strike is invalid and should be cancelled.
Laws around balloting are deliberately restrictive, designed to slow down and obstruct workers’ action. RCN has called a protest outside the Royal Courts of Justice for 9:30am on Thursday 27 April, see details below. Please attend if you can.
TALKS NOT COURTS!
The RCN has been notified court proceedings are going ahead on Thursday
CALL OUT: Come along to a demo at the High Court
Let’s show the government they should be negotiating, not trying to bully RCN members by trying to curtail your strikes through the courts!
Where? Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London WC2A 2LL
When? 9.30AM onwards on Thursday 27 April
Can you make it? For more info email Emma – firstname.lastname@example.org)
