Our Local Nurses on Strike in Oxford.

This was the picket line outside the Churchill Hospital, Oxford, today, Thursday 15th Dec.

The temperature was Minus Nine Degrees.

Respect, Support and Solidarity, from all members of our Branch.

Thank you CWU for supporting the nursing profession.

Your donation of £200.00 on 15/12/2022 to the RCN Strike Fund was successful. It will help nursing staff picketing for fair pay and safe care to maintain strike action.

You can also show your support for nursing staff by displaying a poster in your window or workplace and share your commitment to supporting nursing staff by tagging @thercn or using #FairPayforNursing. 

Information about where and when strike action will take place can be found on the RCN’s Strike Hub

Please share that you have donated to the RCN strike fund with your friends and family. When we protect nursing, we protect the public. 

Today, for the first time in 106 years, nurses are going on strike. And the government this week “shut the book on nurses” losing any hope of reaching a deal and averting action before Christmas..

It was only a few years ago that the country clapped our NHS workers to thank them for their service during the pandemic. Now the government has effectively condemned many a future of uncertainty and stagnant wages during the cost of living crisis – leaving many to rely on food banks, or leave the profession entirely.

It doesn’t have to be like this, they can win this fight.  But they need your help.  Join your local picket line today and next Tuesday and show your support for our incredible nurses going on strike for the first time. The Peace and Justice Project team.

Enough is Enough is a campaign to fight the cost of living crisis. We were founded by trade unions and community organisations determined to push back against the misery forced on millions by rising bills, low wages, food poverty, shoddy housing – and a society run only for a wealthy elite.

We can’t rely on the establishment to solve our problems. It’s up to us in every workplace and every community.
