Naas Nurses vote for strike by massive margin reporters

Nurses at a major hospital have voted to go on strike - by a massive margin of 86pc.

The ballot at Naas General Hospital was organised by the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation.

It was in response to what it claims is chronic overcrowding there, which the union has said is endangering patients.

The industrial action - in the form of rolling protests - and will begin in early September.

INMO Industrial Relations Officer Dermot Reilly is now seeking a meeting with Naas General Management.
