Nurses vote in favour of industrial action at Ennis and Limerick hospitals

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.
