Statement in Solidarity with Striking British Nurses

December 21, 2022
UNAC/UHCP President Charmaine Morales, RN, released the following statement in support of striking British nurses:

Like many nurses around the world right now, the nurses in the British National Health System have been pushed to the breaking point and beyond by staffing shortages, increased patient loads, and falling pay. For nurses, striking is always a last resort. British nurses would only take this extraordinary step for one reason: it’s what they must do to make their voices heard and protect their patients. The RNs and health care professionals of the United Nurses Associations of California/Union of Health Care Professionals stand in solidarity with the striking UK nurses.
