Written 4 months ago by Ben Finnegan

The Psychiatric Nurses Association has announced plans for a three-day strike next month.

The PNA says the stoppage will run from February 12th to 14th – similar to action being taken by the INMO.

Ahead of the strike, the union’s members will refuse to do any additional hours on five days during January and February.

The union says recruitment and retention of nurses within the healthcare system needs to be addressed.

Tracey Quigley is chair of the association and is a nurse in St Fintan’s Hospital in Portlaoise:
