. "Seeing what we see is enough to give anyone PTSD. Nursing is a hard profession, yet our pay doesn't reflect what we do or see. I will be on the picket line." RCN is demanding its members receives a government pay boost of at least 17 per cent. The union claims nurses are worse off by 20 per cent in real terms due to below-inflation awards since 2010. Pat Cullen, RCN secretary, said: "Ministers had more than two weeks since we confirmed that our members felt such injustice that they would strike for the first time. Ministers have chosen strike action."
