Manx nurses indicate appetite for industrial action

More than half vote in favour over pay dispute

Nurses in the Isle of Man have indicated they'd be willing to take industrial action in a dispute over pay.

Last month members of the Royal College of Nursing were balloted about the most recent pay offer, with more than 80 percent saying the proposed four percent award was unacceptable.

When asked if they'd be willing to take action, more than half said yes.

Trade unions on the Island have been in pay negotiations with Manx Care since May last year.
