Cashel hospital nurses vote to strike

Nurses working at St Patrick's Hospital in Cashel, Co Tipperary have voted for industrial action.

The failure of management to implement recent agreements on staffing levels has led to the decision to opt for action at the end of the month.

Don Culliton, industrial relations officer with the Irish Nurses Organisation, said that some progress had been made with staffing, but overall agreements are not being honoured.
