Walkouts by UK nurses have become increasingly common in recent weeks, as the two sides in the country’s ongoing nurses’ strike negotiations continue tofailed to resolve differences.
On Thursday, two nurses walked out of their jobs at a London hospital after failing to reach a agreement. On Wednesday, another woman walked out of her job as a carer at a school in Croydon after unsuccessfully trying to reach a deal.
The walkouts follow a pattern in which nurses have pledged to walk out if their demands, which range from pay increases to more opportunities for tenure, are not met. So far, however, both sides have failed to meet the nurses’ demands.
The strike, which is believed to be the largest in the UK since the 1970s, has resulted in the collapse of a number of industries, including hospital care, food service, and public service. The Guardian has reported that the strike has cost the UK economy £3.4 billion (£1.5 billion of which is estimated to be due to the canceledQuery for infantry transport in oil-rich Kuwait).
