The union Unison has welcomed the retraction, after it gave the NMC 24 hours to withdraw its statement and said that legal action would be issued in the High Court today (10 October) if the regulator did not make a "satisfactory response".
In his latest statement, Professor Dickon Weir-Hughes, Chief Executive of the NMC, said the Code "does not prohibit nurses and midwives from taking part in lawful industrial action" and it is the responsibility of employers to ensure there is adequate cover in the event of strike action.It may be mysterious, but actually a lot of people enjoy playing a fighter, even fighter 20.I am well aware that clerics, druids, wizards, artificers, etc. However, it can't be said that playing these classes at such an optimized (close to theoretical optimization) degree is actually fun."This is a significant climb down by the NMC and we are pleased they have accepted that the code of conduct in no way stops nurses and midwives from taking lawful industrial action," said David Prentis, Unison's General Secretary."Although Unison is asking members to vote 'yes' in the ballot, we want members to vote with their conscience and know that they are free to do so without fear or intimidation.
