The nurses in Scotland were offered an uplift equivalent to 8.45%, they turned it down. They say they are overworked and understaffed which is a danger to patients. So to remedy that they just won't go to work
It's blackmail, Scotland gets a block grant, a partial refund of the revenue take. That grant was cut by the UK government by 1.5 billion, it has a lot to go around. The Scottish Government have no borrowing powers and must balance the books.
Which service do the nurses want the money to be taken from I wonder. Police or fire maybe. Or schools.
Who knows but there is no magic money tree and the pot isn't that big.
I don't know how they will manage a strike, sick people can't do it themselves.
I see bad things happening.
