Manx Labour Party's support for striking nurses

Political party says community should back workers

The Manx Labour Party says it stands fully behind Manx nurses who undertook strike action this week.

Members of the Royal College of Nursing took part in a twelve-hour walkout on Thursday, calling for better pay and staffing levels.

With negotiations at an apparent 'deadlock', the political party says: Nurses need to hear from the chief minister, their elected officials and their employers as to how we can resolve the ongoing impasse.'

It's also calling on the community to back workers fighting for better treatment.
