Messages of support for for tomorrow’s nurses’ and midwives’ strike from Irish nurses around the world, asking “for a reason to come home”.
Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) President Martina Harkin Kelly said:
“I’m proud and humbled by the support of our nursing and midwifery colleagues around the world. Globally, our nurses and midwives are standing up for safe staffing, fair pay, and for our patients, who deserve better care. That’s what Wednesday’s strike is all about.
I’m touched and saddened by their core message “give us a reason to come home”. Ireland’s public health service does not pay a competitive wage, meaning many of Ireland’s brilliant nurses and midwives are forced to look overseas to secure fair pay and safe conditions.”
