Nurses, members of the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO), are refusing to go along with ministry plans to use lower-paid staff to cover work currently done by higher qualified and hence higher paid staff.

The trade unions have collaborated with the government in the Haddington Road Agreement, part of which includes cuts in an attempt to save 290 million euros ($400 million) from the Health Service Executive (HSE) budget. However, HSE now says it needs to save an additional 80 million euros ($100 million) and has proposed “de-skilling” measures. (wsws)
