NIPSA members across public services in Health, Education and the Civil Service will join with other public sector unions in taking co-ordinated strike action on the 18th of January 2024.

This unprecedented escalation is in response to the continuing failure to address the funding crisis in public services and the long running issue of public sector pay.

This action is the next step in a series of strikes across public services which have been ongoing for the last few years as a result of zero or below inflation pay-increases.

The action is being coordinated with other public sector unions through NIC-ICTU with BDA, CSP, GMB, INTO, NAHT, NASUWT, RCM, UNISON, UNITE, RCM and SCoR all confirmed as taking part in the action.
