Nurses in Clare, Limerick and Tipperary have voted to begin industrial action at all hospitals in the region including Ennis Hospital and University Hospital Limerick.
A ballot for industrial action was passed by a massive 93 per cent with members of the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation to begin a work-to-rule at the University Hospital Limerick, Ennis, Nenagh and Croom Hospitals from February 3.
The action will see nurses refusing to perform administrative, clerical or non-clerical tasks, but will stop short of a full strike.
The action is in response to ongoing difficulty at the Accident and Emergency ward at University Hospital Limerick and claims INMO claims of a massive shortage of nurses in the region.
A Health Service Executive plan to open decommissioned beds in Ennis and Nenagh without any extra nurses or support staff is also an issue for the nurses.
